Six abducted Chibok girls dead

18 May 2016, 19:51

Lagos - Six of the 219 missing Chibok schoolgirls who were abducted by Boko Haram in 2014 are believed to be dead, according to the rescued girl who was found yesterday, Premium Times reports.

Activists and local officials say that 19-year old Amina Nkek told them that the rest of the kidnapped girls were in the Sambisa forest, but that six had died.

Nkek's claims could prove to be true as according to earlier reports by Vanguard, she was rescued in Kulakaisa village which is on the fringes of the Sambisa forest.

She added that the kidnapped schoolgirls were well protected and secure, to prevent any attempts by the Nigerian army to rescue them.

The kidnapping of the Chibok schoolgirls in 2014 drew international attention with the Nigerian government still making an attempt to bring the girls back home alive.
