Six women and nine children in Nigeria that had been kidnapped several months ago have managed to escape their captors. According to Nigerian officials, the women and children had to walk for six days until reaching safety.

The 15 hostages were kidnapped separately from farming communities in Borno state’s Chibok district. Borno state’s governor, Babagana Zulum, appealed for an end to fighting in the region.

It was not clear who kidnapped the women but they have escaped from what is a known enclave for Islamic State-linked extremists.
