At least three authorised representatives of the parents of the 219 missing Chibok girls have visited the Murtala Muhammed Foundation (MMF) office, Abuja, to view photos of the girl claiming to be one of the 219 missing students kidnapped by Boko Haram, according to online reports.

THEWILL reported last night that Mr. Yakubu Nkeki, Chairman, Mr. Lawan Zana, Secretary and Mrs. Yana Galang, Women Leader, of the Chibok Girls Movement, all whose children are among the kidnapped 219 Chibok girls, were upon their arrival shown photos of the girl arrested along with another woman, on Friday March 25, carrying explosives in Limani, Cameroon.

Chief Executive Officer of the Murtala Muhammed Foundation, Aisha Muhammed-Oyebode reportedly said that a set of photographs had been sent to the MMF on the evening of Monday March 28 by Garba Shehu, Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity but a more recent batch of photos, taken at 2pm on Tuesday, March 29, was sent to the MMF by Ambassador Hadiza Mustafa, Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Cameroon.

“The earlier set of photos showed the girl partially clothed and squatting on the sandy floor within a low cement wall enclosure, which was surrounded by soldiers and some civilians. In that same batch, the woman was being carried in the arms of a soldier, with her face swollen and plaster covering different parts of her body. She was also partially clothed,” Aisha revealed.

“In the more recent photos, however, the girl was fully clothed, standing against a wall and looking into the camera. The woman was also standing straight beside what appeared to be a hospital bed, she was fully-clothed. Her face still appeared slightly swollen with dressing on her forehead.”
