2014 by Boko Haram are dead, activists and
local officials have quoted one of the girls
rescued Tuesday as saying.

Nineteen-year-old Amina Nkek was rescued
in Kulakaisa village at the fringes of Sambisa
forest, by a Chibok vigilante group, the
sources said.

A source familiar with the rescue said Ms.
Nkek was breast feeding a child. After she was taken to Chibok, where she was identified by her parents, Ms. Nkek told
the community leaders that “all the girls are
in Sambisa forest, but six of them had died”,
a source told PREMIUM TIMES.

The source quoted Ms. Nkek as saying that
the remaining girls were “well secured and
protected” to stop the Nigerian Army from
rescuing them. He added that the girl was taken to the army unit in Damboa, Borno state.

The army said in a statement that “one of the
abducted chibok school girls, Falmata
Mbalala, was among the rescued persons by
our troops at Baale near Damboa”.

The statement, signed by army spokesperson,
Sani Usman, did not say why the names
differed. The BBC quoted Hosea Abana Tsambido, the chairman of the Chibok community in Abuja,as saying that Ms. Nkek was found by the vigilantes after venturing into the forest to search for firewood.

Over 219 girls were abducted by Boko
Haram from their school hostel in 2014.
Some of the girls managed to escape.The abduction attracted global attention and the Nigerian government said that efforts were being made to rescue the girls alive.
