BBOG Confirms Rescued Chibok Girl’s Identity

The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement has confirmed the identity of a Chibok School girl, Maryam Ali Maiyanga who was found in Pulka by Nigerian troops at the weekend. In a statement issued Saturday in Abuja and signed by its spokesperson, Sesugh Akume, BBOG identified Maryam as Umber 198 on its list.

Maryam Ali Maiyanga (2-L), one of the more than 200 Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped Boko Haram Islamists in April 2014, carries her 10-month-old son while arriving at the Government House, after her rescue, on November 5, 2016 in Maiduguri.

Nigerian troops early November 4 rescued another of the missing Chibok schoolgirls seized by Boko Haram Islamists, during an operation near the border with Cameroon, a spokesman said.

The girl, who was found along with her baby son, was one of the more than 200 schoolgirls taken by the Islamist group from their hostels in the remote town of Chibok in April 2014.

“We welcome news of the return of another of our abducted Chibok Girls.
