Emotional reunion: first Chibok girl rescued, reunited with family

One of the 219 Chibok girls, who were abducted by Boko Haram militants, has been rescued and reunited with the family. Media identified the girl as Amina Ali Nkeki. She was reportedly rescued by a vigilant group on last day. As per reports, the military backed group found her on last day, with a baby, at Sambisa forest region near Cameroon. Earlier in 2014, nearly two-hundred and nineteen students were abducted by the militants from a school in Chibok region. The incident had immediately sparked huge outcry across the world on last year. It has given life to ‘Bring back our children’ campaign that acquired support from numerous political personalities including US first lady Michelle Obama and Pakistan educational activist and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai. As per media report, the girl was found with a suspected Boko Haram militant who claims to be the husband of girl. It is learned that, the man was later arrested and handed over to the Nigerian military force. International medias identified the man as Mohammed Hayatu. Media quoted as Hosea Abana Tsambido, chief of the Chibok community in the region, as saying; the girl was discovered by a local group who entered the forest in search of firewood. The girl claims that nearly six of the abducted girls are no more, but others are still there in Sambisa region, it added. However, it seems that the new development will give new wings to the ‘Bring back our children’ campaign globally.
