Nigerian Army Rescues Another Chibok Girl, 99 Other Women, Children


The troops of the 21 Armoured Brigade of the Nigerian Army have rescued one of the Chibok girls, Ihyi Abudu, and 99 other women and children from the Boko Haram stronghold in Sambisa forest in Borno State.

In an operation tagged ‘Operation Lake Sanity II’, which was part of Operation Hadin Kai, the military eliminated the terrorists in Sambisa, Timbuktu, and other parts of the North East Region.   

It was gathered from reliable sources that a girl listed as number 67 on the list of the abducted Chibok girls managed to escape from the terrorists’ hideouts in Parisu and was rescued during a clearance operation in the BARARAM general area of the notorious Sambisa Forest.

The source said as the troops of the Nigerian Army entered the terrorists’ camp, the combat-ready soldiers were met with a heart-wrenching sight as the Chibok girl with her two children, 99 rescued captives comprising 41 women and 57 children that looked so malnourished and traumatized, but alive, surrendered to the troops.

The source said that following a successful rescue mission, the Nigerian Army’s Medical Corps immediately provided critical medical care to the freed victims of Boko Haram who have been in captivity.                                                         

According to the source; “The team moved quickly and immunized the victims against deadly diseases and the medical team quickly assessed their condition. Many showed signs of malnutrition, dehydration, and exposure to diseases. The team sprang into action, administering vaccines and medications to prevent the spread of diseases”.

It was further gathered that Ihyi Abudu was number 19 among the Chibok girls that were rescued by the Nigeria Army while over 161,000 Boko Haram and their families had so far surrendered to the troops during various operations.
