Military plans rescue of Chibok girl’s kids with Boko Haram

The military says it has rescued another of the Chibok schoolgirl kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents in 2014.

The Theater Commander of Operation Hadin Kai Theater Command, Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Ali, who made the disclosure on Monday, gave the name of the rescued lady as Saratu Dauda, aged 25.

Ali said she was rescued by the ground troops of the Theater Command on May 6, 2023 at Ukuba terrorists’ hideouts in the Sambisa forest, Borno State.

“Prior to her rescue through escape, Saratu was married to Abu Yusuf, an Improvised Explosive Devices Boko Haram expert,” Ali said, adding that Saratu left behind her three children with her forced husband and sneaked out of the Sambisa forest to the hands of the troops.

He gave the assurance that efforts were ongoing to rescue her children who are in custody of her terrorist husband, Abu Yusuf.

The military handed Saratu over to the Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajiya Zuwaira Gambo, Borno State, in Maiduguri.

The commissioner said the state government would sponsor Saratu’s university education.

The commissioner said Saratu would immediately be taken to Bulumkutu Rehabilitation Centre in Maiduguri to join others who are currently undergoing training to become self-reliant and be useful to society.
