A suspected suicide bomber intercepted in northern Cameroon
on Friday before she could blow herself up claimed to be one of 219 schoolgirls
kidnapped by Boko Haram in Chibok town in 2014, military and local government
sources said.
Two girls carrying explosives were stopped by local
self-defense forces in the village of Limani, in an area of northern Cameroon
that has been the target of frequent suicide bombings in recent months.
They were then handed over to Cameroonian soldiers belonging
to a multi-national force set up to take on Boko Haram.
“One of them indeed declared that she is one of the
Chibok hostages. She is around 15. We are now verifying, because on the
Nigerian side they have the names and photos of these girls,” said local
government administrator Raymond Roksdo.
Two military sources, who asked not to be identified as they
were not authorized to speak to the press, also confirmed that the girl had
claimed to have been one of the Chibok abductees.
“We need a few days to be able to confirm this
information. We have to debrief all the men who were present and interrogate
the two girls before we can say anything,” one of the military sources
said.
