JUST IN: Another Chibok Girl Rescued, Says Zulum

Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum said on Saturday that another Chibok girl had been liberated from captivity.

The recovered female was married to a Boko Haram fighter and had two children while in captivity, according to the Governor in Maiduguri’s Government House.

As of the time of this reporting, the specifics of her rescue are still hazy.

About 276 students of Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, were kidnapped on April 14, 2014 by Boko Haram terrorists.

The abduction caused a stir worldwide, leading to calls for the return of the girls by global figures, including then First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.

Although a good number of the students have regained their freedom, about 100 are still believed to be in captivity.

In April, seven years after the abduction, Zulum pledged to safely recover the remaining girls.
