Two years after 276 girls were abducted from Chibok, Borno state, fresh hope has arisen that the girls might still be alive.
Of the girls abducted, some of The Chibok girls have escaped and 219 remain missing. A new video from CNN showing about fifteen of the girls has indicated that the girls might yet be alive.
Despite assurances from the Buhari administration that the girls will be found, the girls have remained missing. The government has not ruled out negotiating with the Boko Haram abductors.
Two of the parents have reportedly identified their daughters in the video.

There has been no official response from Nigeria’s federal over the video which is believed to have been recorded in December 2015.
Despite receiving assistance from the United States, finding and rescuing the Chibok girls remains a challenge.
