One of the abducted Chibok girls recently released by the Boko Haram insurgents, Susan Ishaya, is four months pregnant, chairman of Chibok community in Abuja, Tsamdo Hosea Abana, has confirmed.

Abana, who made the disclosure through a phone chat , lamented the trauma parents and the abducted girls are going through, saying their lives will never be the same again.

Security sources said Miss Ishaya was found near a police station in the border town of Mubi on Wednesday after she was left there by the insurgents.

Abana confirmed that the girl in question was among the schoolgirls abducted by the insurgent group about five months ago in Chibok, Borno State, adding that she has been moved to Adamawa State Police Headquarters in Yola.

“Susan is actually one of our daughters abducted from Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok.

She was found in Mubi where her abductors dumped her and she was later taken to Yola.

It has been proved that the girl is four months pregnant, and she is psychological and physically traumatized,” he stated.

Abana, who pleaded with the police authorities to ensure that she is given adequate medical attention considering her plight, also called on federal government to step up efforts toward freeing the remaining girls and re-uniting them with their families.

He revealed that the girl is suffering from trauma and there are signs of physical abuses on her body, saying he believed the insurgents subjected their captives to horrible physical and sexual abuses.

“Evidently, the girl was subjected to serious abuse. There are bruises on her body, and she is suffering from psychological trauma”, Abana stated.

Sources at the Police Clinic in Yola confirmed that Miss Ishaya was on admission at the clinic where she was receiving treatment but that she was taken to the police headquarters in the morning.

However, a source said the girl might have been referred to a better hospital.
