 Member of Chibok Community Identifies Missing Girls In Video

Former Nigerian Education Minister and Vice-President of the World Bank’s Africa division (3r L) Obiageli leads a march of Nigeria women and mothers of the kidnapped girls of Chibok, calling for their freedom in Abuja on April 30, 2014. Nigerian protesters marched on parliament today to demand the government and military do more to rescue scores of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamists more than two weeks ago. Dubbed “a million woman march” and promoted on Twitter under #BringBackOurGirls, the protest was not expected to draw a massive crowd and turn-out was hindered by heavy rain in the capital Abuja. But several hundred women and men, mostly dressed in red, marched through the rain towards the National Assembly carrying placards that read “Find Our Daughters.” AFP PHOTO / PHILIP OJISUAPHILIP OJISUA/AFP/Getty Images

A female member of the Chibok Community has identified some of the girls in the video released by CNN as the girls abducted two years ago.
“I saw the girls and for sure they are Chibok girls” she said, adding that “I recognise some of them because we are from the same area”.
She also noted that the girls “were not like this ” two years ago, as “they have changed”.
A video appearing to show proof of life of some of the kidnapped Chibok girls is being aired, along with images of tearful parents recognizing their daughters, unheard of since the mass abduction by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram two years ago.
CNN showed the video, reported to be made in December of the girls wearing the hijab and of one mother reaching out to a computer screen as she recognizes her daughter.
“we are all well,” one of the girls said in the video.
Two mothers and 16 fathers of the girls have died since the mass abduction, some of them victims of Boko Haram attacks.
Others died from illnesses blamed on stress, according to Yakubu Nkeki, Head of a Support Group and uncle of two abducted girls.
