A second Chibok schoolgirl has been found two days after one, Amina Ali Nkeki, safely returned after being found in Sambisa Forest in Borno State, according to the Nigerian Army. The girls are part of the more than 200 abducted by Boko Haram from their school on April 14, 2014.
Army Spokesman Col Sani Usman said the girl identified as Serah Luka was among 97 women and children rescued by troops in operations in the north-eastern Borno State.
More than 270 girls were abducted by the Islamist sect group in 2014, with 217 girls remaining missing.
Amina had yesterday met President Muhammadu Buhari who said her safe return has given the government hope that others would be rescued alive.
“Rest assured that this administration will continue to do all it can to rescue the remaining Chibok girls who are still in Boko Haram captivity,” the president said.
