The Nigerian Army has rescued some of the still missing Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram in April 2014.

No official announcement has been made about how many of the girls had been rescued.

It appears the army is keeping things under wraps until the girls, now women, have been identified.

But Mr. Ali Maiyanga, a parent of two of the 276 kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls, has confirmed that his second daughter was among the girls rescued from Boko Haram.

The first escaped in November 2016, two years after the girls were abducted from their school.

She returned with a baby born in captivity. But now, she has returned to school to finish her education.

Mr Ali Maiyanga’s two daughters were part of the few Muslim schoolgirls taken with the majority Christian Chibok girls, said
US Nigeria Law Group, which has been tracking the abduction.

Maiyanga said he had spoken with his daughter, who informed him that she along with others were rescued by the army.

According to Emmanuel Ogebe of the U.S. Law Group, there are other escapees with the army, waiting to be identified by their parents.

After the kidnap of the 276 girls, some of the girls escaped, while 100 were released via negotiation with government.

Up till now, 112 of the girls are still with Boko Haram.

However, there are fears that some of them may have died as a result of the bombardments of Boko Haram enclaves by Nigeria’s military.

And many, as the terrorists’ leader Abubakar Shekau once said, had been married off.


  1. Kudos to the men and officers of Nigerian armed forces. And big thank you to Mr. President. By the grace of God, all the remaining girls and others in the captivity of Boko haram and other insane groups will be rescued and return home safely. May Allah continue to protect our men In the war against all enemies of the country.

  2. Join army Nd do your patriotic duty, Tony. You are a man. Talks are cheap and cowards like you can talk for 1000 years without lifting a finger. Am sure your mother still hides you at her back from your mates.

  3. The useless Fulani soldiers should hide their heads in shame for claiming that they rescued the girls. The girls escaped from the Boko Haram camps on their own. If army actually rescued the girls they should go ahead to rescue the remaining CHIBOK girls. Always bad news from the North.

    • How do you think the girls will still be together after all these years? girls whose alignments have since been dislocated by Islamic uncircumcized prick,
