A teenage girl that was abandoned by her captors in Adamawa State nearly two weeks ago is not one of the schoolgirls abducted by the Boko Haram sect since April, leader of the Chibok Elders Forum, Dr. Pogu Bitrus, has said.
The girl was abandoned at Mararraban Mubi in Hong Local Government Area of Adamawa and was feared to be one of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.
The girl of about 20, was found after she was dumped at an unidentified location from where she trekked for three days to a village near Mararraban Mubi, where she was found by villagers and taken to a nearby police station. She was later moved to Abuja and kept in custody of the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI).
It was learnt that to ascertain her true identity, leaders of Chibok community in Abuja and the Vice Principal (Academics) of Government Girls Secondary Chibok, were brought to Abuja to identify the girl, who gave her name as Suzanna Ishaya.
However, it has been established beyond reasonable doubt that the girl in question was not one of the Chibok girls.
According to Dr. Bitrus, “We have confirmed that she is not from Chibok and is not one of the girls abducted in April, but the remaining story is with the security agencies because she is in their custody”.
The Chibok leader also hinted that the girl in question might have been abducted from another location by Boko Haram and married off to one of their commanders.
It would be recalled that the girl, upon medical examination, was found to be four months pregnant with signs of physical abuse on her body.
