Community disowns suicide bomber who claims to be one of abducted girls
Although yet to see the suspect's picture, Abana insists that from the information available to him, the girl is not from the Chibok.
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.
According to the #BringBackOurGirls group, the picture has also not been made available to them
Earlier, the group had urged the government to verify the suspect’s claim that she was one of the abducted 219 Chibok girls.
