Troops Rescue Abducted Chibok School Girl

He said Pagu, intercepted in the company of another young girl, Jamila Adams, about 14 years old, with a child, are in the safe custody of troops and receiving medical attention.

The girl, identified as Salomi Pugo, was rescued early Thursday in a bush around Pulka, some 165 kilometers to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, said the army.

The Nigerian Army on Friday said one of the Boko Haram factional leaders, Mamman Nur, was wounded in an ongoing clearance operation by troops in Lake Chad region.

Chukwu also appeals to the military commander to intervene, for a mutual and cordial collaboration between his men, and the police.

The statement added: "Several of his foot soldiers have also been killed by troops, while numerous insurgents who escaped are now surrendering to Republic of Niger Defence Forces, following the Amnesty granted the insurgents by the Government of Niger Republic".




The rescued girl was identified as Salomi Pogu.

It was learnt that Aloson was elated at the development and optimistic that the remaining girls in Boko Haram captivity would be released soon.

Boko Haram provoked worldwide outrage when it kidnapped more than 270 girls and young women from a secondary school in Chibok on April 14, 2014.

In May 2017, no fewer than 82 of the abducted schoolgirls were released by the terrorist group, in a swap-deal that saw the release of some detained Boko Haram commanders, by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
