Parents deny second rescued girl is among Chibok girls

20 May 2016, 16:11

Abuja - A spokesman for the Chibok girls' parents Yakubu Nkeki has debunked claims by the Nigeria Army that the second girl rescued from the Boko Haram camp on Thursday is among the missing Chibok girls, Daily Trust reports.

Nkeki revealed that the name of the girl is not on the families' list of those missing.

An army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman  had said the girl, Serah Luka was among a group of 97 women and children rescued by troops in the north-east.

Luka was said to be number 157 on the list of abducted school girls.

But the head of the group representing the Chibok girls' parents said their own records did not match up with the details given by the army.

According to International Business Times, some 217 girls were still missing following the mass 2014 kidnapping, which saw 276 girls loaded onto trucks in the dead of the night after Boko Haram raided the dormitories of a secondary school in Chibok.
