A report by The Cable indicates that about thirty of the over 200 girls abducted by Boko Haram from Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state have escaped.
According to the source, the information came from a military source on Wednesday, July 9, 2014.
The military source who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that two other Boko Haram captives — a boy and a 10-year-old girl — also escaped.
“All 32 escapees and the hunters who helped them to escape are currently with soldiers,” he said.
Just recently, a member of the Islamist sect who spoke with BBC said the only condition for the release of the girls was a prisoner swap.
He insisted that the Federal Government should release their imprisoned comrades in exchange for the Chibok schoolgirls.
He told the BBC that the girls were in “a state of amnesty”, healthy and eating well, adding that the Christians who refused to convert to Islam were not forced to do so as it is anti-Islamic.
The Boko Haram member maintained that the girls were taken for a specific reason and reiterated the condition for their release, adding that the girls would be released once the federal government met the terrorist group’s demands for a prisoner exchange deal.
“Today, if the government releases our members, tomorrow or the next day, we promise you can see all of them. As our leader Abubakar Shekau promised to the media, if the government releases our members, we will release them.”
