The recently rescued Chibok school girl, Salomi Pogu, has on Tuesday, been handed over to the Borno State government by the Nigerian Army.

Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Rogers Nicholas presented the two rescued girls to the Borno State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Usman Durkwa, in Maiduguri.

Recall, Salomi Pogu was rescued on January 4, alongside one other girl, identified as Jamila Adams, by troops of Operation Lafiya Dole at Pulka in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno state.

The girls are expected to be handed over to their parents and guardians after proper registration.

Receiving the girls on behalf of the state government, Durkwa commended the military for their efforts which resulted in the rescue of the abducted girls.

He also expressed hope that the remaining school girls would soon regain their freedom from the Boko Haram insurgents as well.

“We waited for long for the rescue of the girls; it is a welcome development that the theatre commander was able to rescue the girl within one week”.

The girls had been abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, in 2014.
