Lagos – One of the 219 schoolgirls abducted in Chibok in northeast Nigeria has been found, the first found since their seizure by Boko Haram more than two years ago, activists, the head of a support group and a community leader said on Wednesday.
Tsambido Hosea Abana, a Chibok community leader in Abuja from the BringBackOurGirls pressure group, tweeted that the girl was found by civilian vigilantes in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State on Tuesday.
AP reported that YaKubu Nkeki, head of the Abducted Chibok Girls Parents' group, said his niece Amina Ali Nkeki was found wandering in the forest. He said the 19-year-old is "fine. She's pregnant but suffering a trauma problem."
He said the young woman was brought to Chibok on Tuesday night and reunited with her mother, but her father died while she was held captive.
