Father identifies Chibok girl kidnapped by Boko Haram in new video
The father of one of the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped from the remote area of Chibok more than two years ago said he recognised his daughter in a video released by Boko Haram on Sunday.
“When I heard her voice, I realised she is my daughter,”
He was referring to Maida Yakubu, whom he identifies as the girl seen in the video choking back her tears as she describes an air strike by the Nigerian armed forces.The girl speaks in the Chibok dialect.
“We’re certain that these are the Chibok girls,” Abdullahi told AFP.“We recognise up to 10 from the video,” Abdullahi said, adding that he is waiting for confirmation from the Nigerian government and parents of the girls before releasing any more names.
