The Chairman, Chibok Community in Abuja, Tsambido Abana told newsmen that five parents claimed they received calls from phone numbers belonging to their missing daughters.

Abana said “Five parents informed me that they have been receiving calls from their daughters’ phones, but when they called back, the persons that responded said the phones were their own and that they should stop calling the lines.

“We don’t know if the network (telecom firms) had allocated the girls’ lines to other persons or if the callers were just playing pranks on the parents; we will report this to the government for security agencies to investigate.”

The community leader also said he did not verify the claim.

A teenage girl who spoke to CNN, shared some insights into what the girls go through in the forest with the terrorists.

The girl, who was called Fati for security reasons, regained freedom after being held hostage for two years.

Fati said “They came to us to pick us. They would ask, ‘Who wants to be a suicide bomber?’ The girls would shout, ‘me, me, me.’ They were fighting to do the suicide bombings.

“It was just because they want to run away from Boko Haram. If they give them a suicide bomb, then maybe they would meet soldiers, tell them, ‘I have a bomb on me’ and they could remove the bomb. They can run away.”

Adding that “There were so many kidnapped girls there, I couldn’t count. There were always bombs and bullets coming from the sky. All of the girls were so frightened. All of them, they always cried and the men raped us. There is no food, nothing. The children, you can count their ribs because of the hunger.”

The United States of America has offered to assist Nigeria in terms of intelligence and advisory to locate and bring home the girls abducted from their school in Chibok, Borno State.
