The head of the Chibok Abducted Girls Parents group, Yakubu Nkeki has said that a second girl who was rescued by the Nigerian Army is not one of the kidnapped girls.

The Army had identified Serah Luka as one of the Chibok girls after rescuing her on Thursday, May 19, 2016.

Nkeki however told AFP that his records showed only two girls with the surname Luka.

“These are Kauna Luka Yana and Naomi Luka Dzakwa. Among the list of parents we have only four priests and none of them is Luka,” he said.

“Among the girls none of them is from Madagali. They were either from Chibok, Damboa, Askira and Uba (all in Borno state). So I can say… that this girl is not among the abducted Chibok girls.

“We were never contacted by the military for verification of the girl’s identity before the announcement was made,” he added.

The army’s announcement of Serah’s rescue was made via a statement released by its spokesperson, Colonel Sani Usman.
