It comes as two Chibok girls have reportedly been released – one of whom called Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki who was found near Sambisa forest and believed to have been freed as a 'gesture of good faith' by the militants.
However, there was confusion mounting over whether the second girl who was freed in a raid on a Boko Haram camp on 19 May, was from Chibok. Yakubu Nkeke told The Times:
 "I can say in my capacity as the head of the Chibok Abducted Girls Parents group that this girl is not among the abducted girls."

The Times of London believes only a third of them remain alive.

“We want to surrender because things are getting worse,” said Amir Muhammad Abdullahi, who is reportedly Boko Haram’s second in command. He said no side was winning the battle and that only a third of the girls remained as “the rest have been martyred”.
