Four more girls surfaced, Wednesday, after escaping from their Boko Haram abductors.

Wednesday’s escape brings the list of the girls that have gained their freedom to 48, with 230 schoolgirls believed to still be held hostage by the terrorist group.

The new escapees were said to have been sighted around Monguno in the northern part of Borno State.

Despite the promise made by Chief of Defence Staff, Air Vice Marshal Alex Badeh that the military was committed to rescuing the abducted girls, four more of the abducted girls were reported to have surfaced yesterday after escaping from their captors without the intervention of the military.

A credible source, who spoke to journalists in Maiduguri, said the girls were rescued by some good Samaritans in a village near Monguno Council Area last Sunday, before they were handed over to security operatives in Maiduguri, the state capital.

The Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, also confirmed this while speaking on the BBC Hausa Service monitored in Maiduguri. He revealed that the girls were hale and hearty.

According to Moro, the girls are now in the custody of security forces and would be handed over to their parents.

“Information reaching me from the area indicates that four more girls escaped from captivity and they are healthy. Security forces are presently trying to identify their parents so that they can be reunited with them,” he said.

The minister faulted the claims that the federal government was not doing enough to rescue the girls, describing the allegation as baseless.

“Government is doing everything within its powers to ensure that the girls are freed unhurt. People should realise that security agents need more time to do the job and they have to be cautious so as not to endanger the lives of the girls in the process of the rescue operation,” he explained.
