There are reports, a schoolgirl abducted by Boko Haram 7 years ago in northeast Nigeria has escaped captivity.
Persecution watchdog Open Doors has been told by their sources, there may be other escapees, but the total number is not yet known.
The Nigerian Army says none of the schoolgirls involved in the 2014 abduction were among those set free in a recent military operation targeting Boko Haram.
However, My Christian Daily reports, Open Doors confirms that a schoolgirl escapee has been able to contact her father via phone, and has been “clearly identified”.
Henrietta Blyth from the charity, says the news “is a ray of hope that others still in captivity may regain their freedom too”.
In 2014 Boko Haram ambushed a boarding school in the town of Chibok kidnapping 276 girls.
