The Nigerian Army says its Operation Hadin Kai forces operating in the North-East Region have rescued a Chibok girl.
The command disclosed this in a statement it issued on Saturday on its Facebook page.
According to the unsigned statement, Chibok’s girl, Aisha Grema, was welcomed by the Nigerian Army Officers’ Wives Association (NAOWA).
The latest rescue of the Chibok girl comes two months after the rescue of two other Chibok girls.
About five years ago, 81 of the school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram on April 14, 2014, were released.
276 girls were abducted by Boko Haram from a public secondary school in Chibok town in Borno state. A presidential committee said that 57 of the girls immediately escaped from the hands of those who kidnapped them.
When the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration came to power in 2015, it started negotiations with Boko Haram. This led to the release of 21 of the girls in October 2016 and another 82 in May 2017.
There is no information about the remaining 112 girls, although the federal government said it is still working to get them released.
