Army hands over rescued Chibok girl to Borno govt
The Nigerian Army on Tuesday formally handed over the rescued Chibok school girl, Salomi Pogu, to the Borno State Government.
The Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Rogers Nicholas, presented two rescued girls, including Pogu, to the state Deputy Governor, Alhaji Usman Durkwa, in Maiduguri.
Nicholas said Pogu was rescued on January 4, alongside one other girl, Jamila Adams, by troops of Operation Lafiya Dole at Pulka in Gwoza local government area of the state.
He called for proper registration of the girls before handing them over to their parents and guardians.
Receiving the girls, Durkwa lauded the military for their commitment to the rescue of the abducted girls.
“We waited for long for the rescue of the girls. It is a welcome development that the theatre commander was able to rescue the girl within one week,” the deputy governor said.
He expressed the hope that the remaining abducted girls would soon be rescued from the Boko Haram insurgents.
