One of the 219 Chibok schoolgirls abducted over two years ago returned home yesterday morning to the boundless joy of her mother who was said to have been so traumatised by her daughter’s captivity that she attempted to kill herself on two occasions.
The girl, Amina Ali Nkeki, who was found yesterday near Sambisa Forest by group of hunters led by the famous thief-catcher, Ali Kwara, was in the company of a man, a suspected Boko Haram member, who claimed to be her husband.
The hunters escorted her home where she correctly identified her mother and her school vice principal.
LEADERSHIP learnt that Amina is the only child of Mrs Binta Ali Nkeki, and that she was born when her mother was already well advanced in age. The returnee schoolgirl was found carrying a four-month-old baby she probably had for her so-called husband. The young girl, now a nursing mother, was said to have told the hunters that some of the schoolgirls were killed while others are still with the Boko Haram insurgents.
One of the community leaders, Dr Danladi Saleh, a medical doctor serving in Chibok at the time the girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents two years ago, confirmed that the girl was found in Mbalala village in Gwoza local government area of Borno State.
