Family identifies daughter in video of abducted Chibok girls
Kawo Yakubu and Esther Yakubu have confirmed a girl seen in Sunday’s video is their daughter.
LAGOS,NIGERIA - The parents of one of the schoolgirls kidnapped from Chibok more than two years ago have identified their daughter in a video released by Boko Haram.
Kawo Yakubu and Esther Yakubu have confirmed a girl seen in Sunday's video making an appeal on behalf of the other Chibok girls is indeed their daughter.
Esther Yakubu, mother of one of the identified girls in the latest video by Boko Haram, says she is disappointed that the Nigerian government is not doing enough to secure her daughter's release.
"They have not done anything, if they have done something they have rescued one. All the kids that have been rescued they rescued themselves."
Father of the girl, Kawo Yakubu, however says he is happy to see his daughter alive.
"That girl that is talking in the video is my daughter. When I saw her I was very happy. I will be able to sleep tonight because she is still alive."
The latest video comes barely a week after what appeared to be a split in the leadership of the terrorist group.
