Nigerian Troops Rescue a Chibok Girl, 99 Others from Boko Haram Stronghold

In a daring operation, the Nigerian Army’s 21 Armoured Brigade has rescued one of the abducted Chibok girls, Ihyi Abudu, along with her two children and 99 other women and children from the Sambisa Forest. The operation, codenamed Operation Lake Sanity ll, was a continuation of the military’s efforts to decimate Boko Haram in the North East Region.

Zagazola reports that the rescued Chibok girl, who was number 67 on the list of abducted girls, escaped from the terrorists’ Parisu hideouts and was rescued during a clearance operation in the BARARAM general area of Sambisa Forest.

The soldiers were met with a heart-wrenching sight upon entering the terrorist camp: the 99 rescued captives, including 41 women and 57 children, were malnourished and traumatized but alive. The Nigerian Army’s Medical Corps quickly provided critical medical care to the freed captives, administering vaccines and medications to prevent the spread of diseases.

This rescue operation brings the total number of rescued Chibok girls to 19, while over 161,000 Boko Haram members and their families have surrendered to the troops during various operations. The Nigerian Army’s commitment to protecting civilians and upholding human rights remains unwavering.

The Chibok girls’ ordeal has captivated the world’s attention, and their rescue serves as a beacon of hope for a nation and people who have suffered greatly at the hands of terrorism.”
