Some of the abducted Chibok girls, including number of victims kidnapped have escaped from their abductors, OnyxNews Nigeria quotes SaharaReporters.

A source acquitted with the information confirmed the news to SaharaReporters, saying, “They are many and not only Chibok schoolgirls alone; they are made up of a variety of women abducted by Boko Haram terrorists.

It was that some parents had been contacted by government officials and may reunite with their loved ones in Maiduguri, Borno State, soon.


According to Daily Trust, some parents had been contacted by officials handling the girls and that they might be invited to Maiduguri on a later date.

A source indicated that Halima Ali is one of the girls believed to have escaped five years since the escape of her sister Maryam.

Halima was reportedly married off to a commander under the instruction of Abubakar Shekau a few months after their abduction from their boarding school in Chibok.


Her father, Ali Maiyanga, could not be reached for comment but a reliable source said that friends and family members trooped to his house to congratulate the family on the good news.

When contacted, the Secretary, Chibok Parents Association, Lawal Zannah, said he had information that some of the girls had escaped but had not yet ascertained the number.
