BREAKING: Nigerian Army Rescues Another Chibok Girl

By Danjuma Aliyu 

The Nigerian Army says it has rescued another Chibok girl abducted by the militant group, Boko Haram in 2014.

In a statement on Twitter today, the military said it “rescued one of the Chibok girls” in Pulka a north-eastern town of Chibok, Borno state.

The girl, Salami Pagu (pictured above) was intercepted in the company of another 14 year old young girl, Jamila’s Adams, who had a child with her.

All are “in the safe custody of troops and receiving medical attention.”

The girls were kidnapped as they wrote their final exams in April 2014.

While 57 of the girls were able to escape on their own, the present government has been able to negotiate the release of more than a hundred of the 276 of them back to their families.
