President Muhammadu Buhari has welcomed the recovery of another Chibok school girl, Rakiya Abubakar, in the Alagarno area of Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.
The president made his feelings known in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Thursday.
He noted that the recovery had raised renewed hope that the other captured girls would one day be reunited with their families, friends and community.
Buhari also commended the military for the diligent investigation which led to the recovery of Rakiya and urged them to continue in the spirit with which they cleared the Sambisa Forest of terrorists.
He assured that the Nigerian Government would continue to do all within its powers to assist the military in locating the rest of the girls and eradicating the menace of terrorism in Nigeria.
With the recovery of Rakiya Abubakar, the rescued Chibok girls, in the last four months, are now 23.
