Breaking: Troops Rescue Another Abducted Chibok School Girl

There are indications that one more of the abducted Chibok school has been rescued by the Nigerian troops.
This is coming after the release of 21 girls about a month ago. The rescue is also on the heels of purported cry for help by Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram, claiming that members of the group were dying of hunger in the Sambisa Forest.
Security agencies were said to have released letters on Friday which Shekau wrote to ISIS begging for food and money to continue to prosecute the agenda of the Islamic sect.
However, sources Saturday morning said that the girl was rescued by troops in Pulka, Gwoza area.
The source close to officials deployed to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Pulka said the young girl was found by the soldiers and brought to Pulka.
“She has been confirmed to be one of the missing girls. Her name is Maryam.
“She was seen with a baby. Both are currently receiving attention and will be escorted to Maiduguri soon,” the source disclosed.
It would be recalled that the 21 Chibok girls recently freed appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies to expedite action in securing the freedom of their colleagues.
The girls were part of 200 female students abducted from Chibok, Borno State in 2014.
