LAGOS, Nigeria (AA) - One of the over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram in 2014 has been "found", according to the #BringBackOurGirls movement.

Oby Ezekwesili, a coordinator of the movement that has campaigned to obtain the girls' freedom, confirmed that the unnamed girl was on her Twitter account Wednesday morning.

“Chairman of #ChibokParents has confirmed news that ONE of OUR #ChibokGirls was found,” she tweeted.

At least 276 girls were kidnapped from their school dormitory in Nigeria’s northeastern town of Chibok on April 14, 2014, by Boko Haram militants.

Hosea Tsambido, chairman of the Chibok community in capital city Abuja, confirmed the development to Anadolu Agency.

“Yes it is true that one of the girls has been found and identified to be one of those abducted. But we are awaiting further details,” Tsambido told Anadolu Agency over the phone.

Army spokesman Sani Usman did responded to a request for the military to confirm the development.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been under pressure from the #BringBackOurGirls movement and other groups to do more to ensure the girls are freed.

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau had repeatedly confirmed being behind the abduction, threatening to sell the girls off as slaves or marry them to his fighters.
