Amina Ali, who was held hostage by the terrorist group for
more than two years, says she was married off a year into
her ordeal and later had a baby girl, Safiya.
The couple and their daughter were found on the outskirts
of Nigeria’s Sambisa Forest in May. She says they fled the
camp by themselves and were not rescued by the Nigerian
military, contrary to reports.
Amina Ali says she has no idea where he is now and is keen
to be reunited with him.
“I’m not comfortable with the way I’m being kept from
him,” the painfully shy 21-year-old told CNN, speaking to
the media for the first time at an undisclosed location in
Abuja Tuesday.
Addressing the father of her child directly, she says: “I want
you to know that I’m still thinking about you, and just
because we are separated doesn’t mean I have forgotten
about you.”
Her statements came two days after the terrorist group
released a grisly video showing the dead bodies of young
women, taken in the aftermath of what Boko Haram says
was a Nigerian airstrike.
