Indications are that all hope of recovering the abducted Chibok girls is lost more than 500 days after the girls were abducted from their schools by Boko Haram militants.

The conclusion was further reached yesterday with the declaration by a returnee from Boko Haram camp after spending some time with the terrorists in their camps.
According to the girl, a twenty-one-year old Tabitha Adamu, one of the women freed from the sect’s camp and handed over to the Borno State Government last week, the girls had turned to Boko Haram fighters.
Tabitha, who is expectant for one of the sect’s commanders who forcibly married her, said she mingled with the girls at various times in the sect’s camp.
According to Tabitha, she was taken from Bayan Dutse in Gwoza Local Government Area, when the insurgents invaded her village.
She said: “They killed my father and brother. They took me along with my mother but at some point we were separated. Since then, I’ve not set my eyes on my mother.
“When he (Abu Kabir, my Boko Haram husband), wanted to marry me, he gave the women who were taking care of us N5,000 as my bride price.”
The fate of the Chibok Girls is largely blamed on the nonchalant attitude of the federal government that treated the kidnap as mere rumour until it was too late to rescue the abducted girls.
