Rescued Chibok girl’s mother survives two suicide attempts

It has emerged that Mrs. Binta Ali Nkeki, mother of Amina Ali Nkeki, one of the 219 abducted Chibok girls, who was rescued on Wednesday had attempted to commit suicide on two occasions following her daughter’s abduction.

This was disclosed by a Chibok Community leader, and medical doctor based in Chibok, Dr. Danladi Saleh in an interview he had with Leadership on the return of Amina Ali Nkeki.

“Yes we had the good news about one of our girls who was found near Sambisa Forest by hunters led by a famous hunter and thief-catcher, Alhaji Ali Kwara. Her name is Amina Ali Nkeki. She led the hunters to her village in Mbala where she was reunited with her mother. She has also met with her school vice principal who recognised her. We cannot say her state of health at the moment but I am sure she should be in Damboa town with the security forces there.

“Amina’s mother, Mrs. Binta Nkeki suffered a huge traumatic disorder and she attempted to take her life twice. I had to personally talk to her, telling her that she just has to be alive if she really wanted her daughter to return home alive and safe. Her case was so delicate we had to monitor her carefully until she was able to recover from the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and return to her village, Mbalala,” Dr. Saleh told Leadership.


It was said that Amina, who is now a nursing mother having had a child for her Boko Haram husband, who is under arrest, was the only child of her aging mother.
