A second Chibok girl kidnapped by Boko Haram militants has been rescued, it has been reported.
Naij.com reported on Friday, citing a statement from the Nigerian army, that the girl was one of 97 women and children freed when the army recently went on the offensive against Boko Haram at Shettima Aboh, Hong and Biladdili general area in Damboa local government area of Borno state.
Army troops are said to have killed 35 Boko Haram terrorists and recovered several arms and ammunition in the operation.
“We are glad to state that among those rescued is a girl believed to be one of the Chibok government secondary school girls that were abducted on 14th April 2014 by the Boko Haram terrorists. Her name is Miss Serah Luka, who is number 157 on the list of the abducted school girls,” the army reportedly said in the statement.
About 276 schoolgirls were reportedly abducted at gunpoint from their boarding school in Chibok town, Borno state, on April 14, 2014. Fifty-seven reportedly managed to escape.
After being rescued by the army, the girl, Amina Ali Nkeki, on Friday met Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari.
