The young suicide bomber who was arrested in Cameroon last week and claimed to be one of the abducted Chibok girls has been disowned by the community.

The Chairman of the community, Tsambido Abana, on Tuesday, March 29, 2016, said the girl has never attended a conventional school in Chibok, Borno State.

Although yet to see the suspect's picture, Abana insists that from the information available to him, the girl, who is believed to be from Bama area of the state, is not from the commnunity.

“I won’t bother to go and see the picture, because from the information given by the government, it is apparent that the girl is not from Chibok. Going to see the picture would create unnecessary tension and expectation among the Chibok parents whose daughters are missing,” he told Punch.

He said the girl's picture was given to Aisha Oyebode of Murtala Mohammed Foundation for verification.
