As the world remembers the over 200 girls kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Borno State, by Boko Haram insurgents, hope seems to be restored, as there have been reported sightings of the girls in Gwoza.
According to a BBC report, the schoolgirls were reportedly seen alive three weeks ago.
A woman said she saw the girls in the north-eastern Gwoza town before the Boko Haram militants were driven out of there by regional forces.
Boko Haram kidnapped 276 girls from their school in the remote town of Chibok, in Borno state on the evening of April 14 last year.
Fifty-seven managed to escape soon afterwards but the remainder have not been seen since an appearance in a Boko Haram video in May last year.
Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has claimed they have all converted to Islam and been “married off”.
