The #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) advocacy group has said that the teenager bomber who claimed to be one of the Chibok girls when she was apprehended in Cameroon is a victim despite the situation. The group said that the claim by the young girl should re-awaken the Federal Government on the need to speedily rescue the Chibok girls who will soon be celebrating two years in captivity.
#BBOG said that the arrest of the girl means that the government now has a means of credible intelligence as to the location of the other girls and the need to rescue them. The group responded to the arrest in a press statement signed by its leaders, Aisha Yesufu, Oby Ezekwesili and Hadiza Bala-Usman.
“We received news yesterday Friday 25 March, of an arrested girl-child suicide bomber in Cameroon who identified herself as one of our abducted Chibok girls.
