'She met her parents, who recognised their daughter before she was taken to the military base in Damboa,' .'Her father's name is Ali and the girl's name is Amina.'
Yakubu Nkeki, head of the Abducted Chibok Girls Parents' group, also confirmed her name and said she was 17 when she was abducted.
He added: 'She's the daughter of my neighbour... They brought her to my house.'
