Girl Abandoned By Boko Haram Is 4-Months Pregnant -Medical Report


A school girl believed to have been abandoned by her Boko Haram abductors in Adamawa State two weeks ago has been discovered to be four months pregnant, a source quoting medical report has said.

The development confirmed the fear expressed by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who in a recent media interview said that many of the abducted girls would have been married to Boko Haram leaders and would have been pregnant, and may never return.
The escaped girl identified as Suzanna Ishaya, 20, was abandoned an unidentified location from where she trekked for three days to a village near Mararraban Mubi in Hong Local Government Area of the state, by the fleeing Islamist insurgents following superior fire power by the military who moved in to ward off their offensive in the area.

Sources said, Suzanna who is now with the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI) in Abuja may have been married to one of the Boko Haram Commanders, is now four months pregnant from preliminary medical examination.

He was reported to be one of the school girls of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, abducted last April by Boko Haram.

However, sources said though, the girl had told the police at Mubi that she was among the abducted girls, “it’s clear now after further investigations that she may have abducted elsewhere, but not Chibok,” the source added.

Leader of the Chibok Elders Forum, Dr. Pogu Bitrus, also confirmed to journalists that the girl is not among the missing Chibok girls.

“We have confirmed that she is not from Chibok and is not one of the girls abducted in April, but the remaining story is with the security agencies because she is in their custody,” Bitrus was quoted as saying.

Director, Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, could not be reached for comment as at Press time.
