The Nigerian Army said it rescued one Mary Ngoshe, who is believed to be one of the abducted girls from Government Girls Secondary School Chibok, in Borno
In 2014, Boko Haram’s abduction of 276 school girls aged 12 to 17 from a boarding school in Chibok sparked a global campaign for their release called #BringBackOurGirls. Eight years later, more than 100 girls are still missing.
On Tuesday the Army had found a woman carrying a baby near a village in the northeastern state of Borno who it said could be one of the high school girls kidnapped in 2014.
The Army revealed that Ngoshe, who was found with a child believed to be hers, was intercepted by the troops while on patrol around Ngoshe in Borno State on Tuesday.
Soldiers “on patrol near Ngoshe intercepted a Mrs Mary Ngoshe and her son,” the army tweet said, accompanied by a photo of a young woman holding a baby.
