Abandoned Chibok girl rescued

A girl believed to be one of the 219 Chibok schoolgirls in Boko Haram’s custody for more than 160 days has been found abandoned.

She was picked up at Kwarihi village near Biu in Borno State after being thrown out of a moving Volkswagen Golf car.
She wandered in the bush for two days before she was rescued by villagers.
The Chairman of the Chibok community in Abuja, Hosea Tsambido, recounted this story yesterday.
He spoke at the gathering of the
#BringBackOurGirls campaigners on a day Borno State Government announced
a scholarship of N1.4million each for 36 girls – among the 57 who
escaped on April 15 from abductors.
According to Tsambido, the abandoned girl, who gave her name as Susanna Ishaya, appeared mentally unstable.
He said she had been handed over to
one of the Chibok parents who took her to the hospital after which she
would be properly questioned.
Tsambido said: “One of the girls was
ferried in a Volkswagen golf and thrown into the bush about two days
ago and she wandered into the village of Kwarihi, near Mubi.
“From there they called one of the parents to take care of her in Kwarihi. They are taking her to Yola.
“When she was asked, she gave her
name as Susanna Ishaya but right now we are not sure if it is her real
name until she is really treated because the people that saw her said
she is both mentally and phsycally sick and has been taken to the
“We believe that she was probably abandoned by Boko Haram because of her health.”
The Borno State Government yesterday
granted scholarship to 36 of the 57 Chibok school girls who slipped
away from  Boko Haram abductors.
As at yesterday, 219 Chibok girls were still in the custody of Boko Haram although there had been covert talks to set them free.
Governor Kashim Shettima said the 36 girls have been admitted into international schools in Abuja, Kaduna and Plateau States.
Fifty one (51) of the girls were
meant for admission after six secured a scholarship at an international
school in Yola, Adamawa State.
The governor said the government is
spending a minimum of N1.4million annual fees on each of the schoolgirls
in their new schools besides other costs for welfare.
The governor, who spoke at a brief
farewell for the girls at the Government House in Maiduguri , pleaded
not to disclose the names of the schools.
He said the schools were kept under
wrap in order to shield the girls from public distraction and to
safeguard the security of the girls and the new schools.
A Borno State  statement said:
“Governor Shettima said he opted to spread the girls in different
schools so as not to make suitable, unnecessary visits that would
continue to make them subject of public focus given the global attention
on them.
“Shettima said the decision to
relocate the schoolgirls was reached after psychosocial experts,
psychologists, medical doctors, interfaith religious experts, women from
civil society organisations and other trauma managers conducted trauma
management sessions for the schoolgirls at the Government House in
Maiduguri some months back and certified the girls set for continued
“The Governor said while it was a
hard decision to send the 36 girls back to school when their colleagues
were still in captivity, the government he said, has not given up on the
girls still held. He said no sane parent would rule out a child that is
held in captivity.
“Shettima called on the schoolgirls
to be of good behaviors, obey the rules of their new schools, put their
bitter experience behind them and focus on their studies so as to
achieve their dreams in life.
“The Governor announced that any of
the schoolgirls that obtains a minimum of five credits will be awarded
automatic scholarship throughout her university education.” Shettima
thanked the parents of the 36 girls that released their children for
continued education noting that his government was deeply committed to
ensuring their children were provided access to the best education money
can offer in Nigeria.
“ He said his administration has a
bias for female education which was why he introduced a female medical
education intervention programme under which 50 female citizens drawn
from the 27 local government areas of the state currently undergo full
scholarship to study medicine abroad while more will be sent in a
continuous exercise.
“Governor Shettima appealed to
members of the media not to bring to the public, the new schools ýthe
girls would be relocated even if the media gets to find out through
investigations. He noted that exposing their schools could expose them
and the schools due to the global interest on them.

Borno State Chairman of the
Christians Association of Nigeria, Reverend Titus Pona who is an elder
in Chibok community, praised Shettima for fulfilling his pledge of
relocating the freed schoolgirls to international schools.
But Tsambido criticized the decision of the Borno State government to send some of the girls to Kaduna.
He said, “the journey from Chibok to
Biu is a journey that now takes two days because of the level of
insurgency; so sending the girls on such a journey with only one
government official and no security protection only shows their level of
“The girls will not  be able to fully concentrate in their new school since Kaduna itself is not spared from insurgency.”
