Hours after Amina Ali, one of the Chibok girls rescued on Wednesday from the insurgents, met with President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the Nigerian Army has on Thursday evening announced the rescue of another of the girls.
Although details of the rescue are yet to be released, Army spokesperson, Usman Sani Kukasheka, a Colonel, who confirmed the rescue, promised to provide more details later
Mr. Usman later confirmed the news to Premium Times late Thursday.
“Yes, we have rescued another one of the Chibok girls but I am working on the details to be released later,” Mr. Usman said. The girl’s identity is not immediately known.
Amina Nkeki was reportedly rescued Wednesday and was received by President Muhammadu Buhari in a State House ceremony Thursday afternoon, with a four-month-old child she had reportedly given birth to while in captivity.
Amina was rescued by the civilian JTF close to the notorious Sambisa forest, over two years after her abduction by militants.
More than 200 girls are still believed to be held by the insurgents.
