The girl who is said to be about 15 years old and surrendered herself  before carrying out a suicide bombing attack in northern Cameroon.

She told authorities she was one of the 276 girls abducted from a boarding school in Chibok by Boko Haram insurgents nearly two years ago.

If confirmed, the development would mark the first news of the missing Chibok girls in these many months.

There were already speculations that some the young girls are being used by their Boko Haram abductors to carry out such attacks given the growing number of young female suicide bombers.

The girl is about 15 years old and turned herself in before detonating her explosives, said Idrissou Yacoubou, the leader of a self-defense group in Limani, Cameroon.

The latest news on this is that the Federal Government of Nigeria has asked her parents to identify her.
