Some female captives who escaped  from Boko Haram camps in 2015 have cried out for government assistance, Daily Trust reports. An 18-year-old girl, simply known as Ummu, who
was kidnapped from Madagali when she was 16 and said she became pregnant in captivity.

She confessed that her and the baby since she gave birth to after her dramatic escape have been living in poverty. Ummu said the release of the Chibok girls renewed her hope of re-uniting with her sisters still with Boko Haram and called on the state and federal government to help all former captives of Boko Haram to reshape their lives.

Also, a 15-year-old girl, Nana who escaped from Sambisa  forest with her mother during a military air raid called for help from the government to sponsor her education as she wantedto study medicine.

However, both girls said their fathers were killed by the militants and faced difficulty accessing medical assistance and basic needs.

Meanwhile, the federal government has promised to provide education and jobs for the 21 freed Chibok schoolgirls.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who disclosed this made the promise when he visited the girls at the DSS medical centre situated along the Airport Road, Abuja.
