A schoolgirl among those abducted from Government Girls Secondary School Chibok in April 2014 has reportedly been rescued.
Boko Haram terrorists had six years ago stormed the boarding school and kidnapped the students who were said to be writing their final examination at the time, an action that necessited protests globally.
Some of the girls were rescued years after while many are still in custody of the terrorist group.
Hauwa Halim Maiyanga, according to TheCable quoting a military source, was rescued by troops waging insurgency war around sambisa forest.
“For a month now, troops have been bombarding the Sambisa forest and Boko Haram hideouts in the operations Tura Takaibango and Lafiya Dole, and many civilians are being rescued,” the source said.
“When the enemies are neutralised, those they have captured regain freedom. The Chibok girl is one of those that has been freed, after her captors hideout was cleared. There are many other girls, we are still trying to find out where they were stolen from,” it added.
“She is currently been examined and given medical treatment at the army hospital there,” another source resident in the area confirmed.
