One of the 276 Nigerian school girls kidnapped by Islamic extremist group Boko Haram in April 2014 has been found alive. Activists with the Bring Back Our Girls movement have confirmed that the now 19-year-old girl, Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki, was found by a Chibok vigilante group Tuesday on the edge of the Sambisa Forest. She was identified by a civilian fighter, and then taken to her mother, who confirmed her identity.
The area where she was found, in the northeastern part of Nigeria near the Cameroon border, is a known hideout for Boko Haram and a spot where the girls have long been suspected to be held. The girl told the vigilante group that others were still in the forest. More than 200 of the girls kidnapped from their secondary school in Chibok in the mass abduction that captured worldwide attention remain missing.
