• Cameroon doubts bomb girl’s claim to be Chibok abductee


    YAOUNDÉ: Authorities in Cameroon on Monday poured doubt on a would-be suicide bomber’s claim that she is one of the 276 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamists in 2014. “We don’t think that she was one of the girls (kidnapped) from Chibok”, an administration official who requested anonymity told Agence France-Presse, citing inconsistencies over her apparent age. The girl in question is one of two would-be suicide bombers arrested in northern Cameroon on Friday wearing 12-kilogram (26-pound) explosives belts. Nigeria is planning to send a delegation, including Chibok parents, to the Cameroonian capital Yaounde to meet her.
