#BringBackOurGirls: Chibok Victim Found in Nigeria After 2 Years, Activist Says

One of the schoolgirls whose abduction triggered the #BringBackOurGirls campaign has been located after more than two years in captivity, activists and military officials said Wednesday.

The mass kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls by Boko Haram from the Nigerian town of Chibok in April 2014 ignited an international outcry. The ensuing #BringBackOurGirls campaign was backed by the likes of Michelle Obama, while the U.S. and other countries sent military assistance.

A handful of the kidnapped girls managed to escape early on but most were never found.

However on Wednesday the Nigerian Army and the #BringBackOurGirls campaign group said that one of the remaining captives, a 19-year-old with a 4-month-old baby, was rescued by pro-government vigilantes on the edge of Nigeria's Sambisa Forest, a Boko Haram hideout.

Alongside her, the Civilian JTF detained a "suspected Boko Haram terrorist" named Mohammed Hayatu, who claimed to be her "husband," according to a statement from Nigerian Army spokesman Col. Sani Usman.
