BREAKING: Military Rescues 21 Chibok Girls

By Ikenga Chronicles October 13, 2016

A Nigerian Government official has confirmed that 21 of the over 200 Chibok Girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram have been rescued.

Garba Shehu, the President’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity confirmed this news through his Twitter handle:

“It is confirmed that 21 of the missing Chibok girls have been released and are in the custody of the Department of State Services DSS”

The Chibok school girls numbering over 200 were kidnaped by the Boko Haram islamist sect in April 2014.

In May, authorities said a first of the missing Chibok girls had been found, and President Muhammadu Buhari vowed to rescue the rest of them.

Dozens of the girls escaped in the initial melee in 2014 but more than 200 remained missing.

Parents accused former president Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s leader at the time of the kidnappings, of not doing enough to track down the girls and bring them home.

Boko Haram, which last year pledged loyalty to the radical group Islamic State, has kidnapped hundreds of men, women and children in their campaign to carve out an Islamist caliphate.
