The current state of these Chibok girls are unknown as the government after several failed negotiations has seemed to have lost hope in the matter. However it has been made known by several sources that these girls have been dispersed to various places, some of which include outside the Nigerian border.

On Friday, a suspected female suicide bomber who claims to be one of the 219 girls abducted by the Boko Haram was intercepted by Cameroonian security before she succeed in causing havoc.

The two girls arrested in Cameroon friday were carrying explosives and were stopped by local self-defence forces in the village of Limani, in an area of northern Cameroon that has been the target of frequent suicide bombings in recent months.

The two girls were then handed over to the Cameroonian soldiers belonging to a multi-national force set up to take on Boko Haram.

However, one of the two girls who should be around the age of 15, claimed that she is one of the abducted Chibok girls. The Cameroonian security further stated that verification is in progress because on the Nigerian side they have the pictures and names of the missing girls.

“We need a few days to be able to confirm this information. We have to debrief all the men who were present and interrogate the two girls before we can say anything,” one of the military sources said.
