The Chibok girl who escaped from the captivity of Nigeria’s notorious Boko Haram group says she misses the man – identified by the military as a militant Islamist – who is the father of her four-month-old baby, Reuters news agency reports.
In her first interview since being rescued, Amina Ali, 21, told Reuters:
“I want him to know that I am still thinking about him. Just because we got separated, that does not mean that I don’t think about him.”
Ms Ali is the only Chibok girl to have escaped since the high-profile abduction of more than 200 of them from a boarding school in north-eastern Nigeria in 2014.
She was found by local people in a forest with the suspected militant who identified himself as her husband and their child.
The Nigerian government kept her and the child in a safe house for a “restoration process”, while the whereabouts of the child’s father are unknown.
Ms Ali told Reuters:
“I just want to go home – I don’t know about school. I will decide about school when I get back, but I have no idea when I will be going home.”
