Kidnapped ‘Chibok Girl’ Reportedly Flees Boko Haram, Says Others Alive

One of the hundreds of Christian schoolgirls kidnapped 18 months ago by Boko Haram reportedly made it out of the Nigerian terrorist group’s stronghold and told of her fellow captives’ ongoing misery, but a military official disputed the claim.

The April 14, 2014, kidnapping of 276 girls from the northern town of Chibok prompted international headlines and a social media campaign made prominent by First Lady Michelle Obama calling for authorities to “Bring back our girls.” While dozens fled in the initial months following capture, the unidentified girl would be the most recent victim to escape the infamous Islamic terror group’s clutches. According to local reports, she said dozens of girls are still alive, many pregnant from rape and riddled with disease.

“All of us were forced to become Muslims but kept in camps far from each other,” the girl reportedly told The Vanguard. “You can only see and recognize those in your camp as any of us who refused being Islamized was either beheaded or shot at point blank range.”
