The Nigerian Army on Friday rescued another kidnapped Chibok girl from Boko Haram captivity.

According to Counter Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst, Zagazola Makama, the rescued girl, Yana Pogu and her four-month twins were rescued in very unhealthy conditions in Borno State.

Makama said the troops in conjunction with the Civilian Joint Task Force(CJTF) engaged the terrorist group in the Bula Dawo axis in the Bama Local Government Area of Borno State killing an unspecified number of insurgents, with several others wounded.

“In the course of the encounter, troops successfully rescued Yana Pogu, a Chibok girl who was number 19 on the missing girl’s list along with her four children.

“She was found with a four-month-old set of twins in a very unhealthy condition. Some of the fleeing insurgents also attempted to ambush their troops but while acting on the intelligence,  the troops responded swiftly with aggressive fire powers, forcing them to flee.

“More women were rescued after the encounter. They are transferred to 21 Armoured Brigade Bama, for medical attention,” he said.

Naija News recalls that Boko Haram insurgents kidnapped 276 female students from the Government Girls Secondary School Chibok in 2014.
