father of her child directly, she said: “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.” Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Amina Ali in red with her daughter Amina regained her freedom from the insurgents three months ago after being held captive for more than two years. She was married off and later had a baby girl, Safiya, with the man she was married off to. The couple and their daughter were found on the outskirts of Nigeria’s Sambisa Forest in May. She insisted they fled the camp by themselves and were not rescued by the Nigerian military, contrary to reports. 
 At the time of their escape, her husband, identified as Mohammed Hayatu, said he too had been kidnapped by Boko Haram. He was placed in military detention for interrogation by Nigeria’s joint intelligence center. According to Amina, the thought of seeing her mother again gave her the courage and strength to flee the Boko Haram camp. Asked how she felt about becoming a mother herself while in captivity, she replied: “I don’t want to answer.” Her statement comes two days after the deadly terrorist sect released a video showing the dead bodies of young women, taken in the aftermath of what the sect says was a Nigerian airstrike. The video also showed a Chibok girl reciting a scripted plea for the release of detained Boko Haram fighters in exchange for the kidnapped girls. Amina Ali was one of 276 schoolgirls abducted from their boarding school in Chibok in April 2014, by Boko Haram fighters. As many as 57 girls were able to escape almost immediately, but more than 200 remain missing.

Some of the girls were said to have been married off to members of the sect. She refused to talk about the attack, saying only she cannot remember what happened that fateful day. After Amina was found, she was taken to Abuja where she met with President Muhammadu Buhari. Her mother has spent the past two months staying with her in the FCT, Abuja and she has still not been back to Chibok. She has been staying in Abuja for the past few months in what the government has described as a “restoration process”. However, the girl said she wants to go home and return to school. “I’m not scared of Boko Haram. They are not my God,” she explained. The whereabouts of the rest of the Chibok girls remain a mystery, though they are believed to be somewhere in the Sambisa Forest, a Boko Haram stronghold in the country’s northeast. 

 Amina remains the only long-held hostage who has escaped. Her message to her the Chibok girls still in captivity is that they should not lose hope. She said she managed to get away and one day they will be able to return to their families too. “Be patient and prayerful. The way God rescued me from Sambisa Forest, he will rescue you too,” she added.
