Health authorities in Cameroon and security officials have started treatment of an arrested suicide bomber who claimed to be one of the 219 missing Chibok Girls.

Available information revealed that the girl was found to be heavily drugged and bore several injuries on her body.

Also, her health condition had delayed her movement to the far north regional capital of Cameroon, Maroua, as earlier planned.

Pictures of the arrested suspected bomber obtained by Nigerian officials indicated that the girl was likely a minor, between ages nine to 12 years.

A statement by Mallam Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to President Mohammadu Buhari on Monday stated that the girl’s “accomplice was about 30 years or more, and both spoke only in Kanuri language.

It added that “Considering the well-known guidelines regarding the publication of photography of minors, we have decided to forward the pictures of the suspected bomber to the Murtala Mohammed Foundation for verification by interested Chibok community stakeholders.

“The Ministry of Women Affairs, the Nigerian High Commission in Cameroon and other agencies of government will continue to work together with other stakeholders to verify all the issues.”
