Four More Chibok Girls Escape from Boko Haram Captivity
FOUR of the about 223 schoolgirls missing, following an attack and abduction by Boko Haram at Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, have reunited with their parents, the state Commissioner for Education, Musa Inuwa Kubo, informed the presidential fact-finding committee in Maiduguri, last week.
Kubo, who appeared before the committee on Friday, at its sitting in Maiduguri, said the four girls were discovered after Governor Kashim Shettima directed the Ministry of Education to open data pages for families of all the girls.
According to the commissioner, it was during the data capturing and visits to parents that it was discovered that four girls, who were among those declared missing, had reunited with their parents but the parents failed to inform the school authorities.
The commissioner was said to have been furious with the parents for keeping the government in the dark.
The four girls were believed to be among those that escaped to the bush and lost direction during the attack and abduction.
The commissioner told the committee that with the discovery of the four girls, a total of 219 girls were still missing.
A total of 276 girls were initially said to have been attacked based on reports by the Borno State Police Commissioner and the State Director of SSS.
Of this, 53 were found and 228 declared missing, however, with the four girls found, the number of those missing stood at 219.
