Arrested bomber may not be Chibok schoolgirl - FG

27 March 2016, 18:55

Abuja -  The Federal Government has expressed some doubts over the suicide bomber arrested in Cameroon who claimed to be one of the 219 missing Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram two years ago.

In a statement on Sunday, Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media to President Buhari, said fresh information from Cameroon indicated that the two arrested bombers are about 10 years old, which rule either of the two as a possible Chibok schoolgirl.

The lost girls were teenagers when they were taken away by Boko Haram gunmen on 14 April, 2014 as they came to school to prepare for the West African School Certificate examinations.

“It has been confirmed that one of two girls is claiming to be among the girls stolen from Chibok on April 14, last year, although doubts have creped into the claim following new information from Cameroon that the two girls are aged about 10 years,’’ Garba stated.

According to the statement, one of the two is also believed to be heavily drugged and therefore not in full control of her senses.
