Nigeria has been facing a series of devastating attacks by female suicide bombers.

Recently two suspected  bombers were stopped by local self-defence forces in northern Cameroon’s Limani by the border with Nigeria Friday. One of the young female bombers carrying explosives confessed that she was one of the 270 schoolgirls that were abducted by Boko Haram back in 2014.

If you can recall, that was the mass abduction that occurred by Islamic militants in a school at Chibok, making worldwide coverage with the campaign  #BringBackOurGirls. About 50 girls managed to escape, but the majority of them are still missing. 

Now the Nigerian government is arranging for the parents of the Chibok girl to make their way to her and identify if it is indeed their child. “We hope that the Chibok parents will be able to identify the girl and determine whether she is indeed one of their missing students,” said Garba Shehu, spokesperson for the Nigerian president.  

They government is hoping the girl can assist with the whereabouts of the other missing girls and therefore keeping her identity hidden.
