Nigerian Troops Rescue Nursing Mother, Suspected to be Chibok Girl

The Nigerian Army has announced that one of the Chibok Girls has been found with a child around the Gwoza area of Borno State.

Mary Ngoshe and her child, as released by the Nigerian Army.

Mary Ngoshe, alongside her child were found by soldiers of the Army’s 36th Task Force Brigade, wandering around the Ngoshe forest in the Gwoza Local Government Area of southern Borno on June 14, 2022.

However, HumAngle denied this, saying of the over 100 abducted Chibok school girls still in Boko Haram captivity, seven of them bear the name “Mary,” and none in that category has the surname “Ngoshe.”

Boko Haram insurgents had on the night of Apr. 14, 2014, kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from the hostels of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok.

About 57 of them escaped and made their way back to Chibok. Twenty-one of the girls were released in a negotiated deal with the government in Oct. 2016.

In May 2017, 82 of the abducted girls were released in a deal facilitated by the government of Switzerland through the Red Cross

So far, over 160 of the missing school girls have regained their freedoms since 2014, while more than 100 are either still with the Boko Haram or are reported to have died in captivity.
