Another Chibok schoolgirl, Rakiya Abubakar has been rescued in the Alagarno area of Damboa local government area of Borno State.
Her discovery, with her six-month-old baby, brings to 23 Chibok girls that have been rescued from
Boko Haram captivity in recent months. One hundred and ninety six girls remain in captivity almost 1,000 days after more than 200 girls were kidnapped from their school dormitory by members of the deadly sect.
The President noted that the recovery raises renewed hope that the other captured girls will one day be reunited with their families, friends and community.
Buhari also commended the military for the diligent investigation, which led to the recovery of Rakiya and urged them to continue in the spirit with which they cleared the Sambisa forest of terrorists.
The President assured that the Nigerian Government will continue to do all within its powers to assist the military in locating the rest of the girls and eradicating the menace of terrorism in the country.
