The Nigerian Army has rescued another one of the more than 200 Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped on April 14, 2014 by Boko Haram terrorists.

Rakiya Abubakar and her baby were rescued by troops of 27 Brigade around Alagarno area near Ajigin in Damboa LGA.

The spokesperson for the army, Sani Usman, made the announcement on his Facebook Page Thursday afternoon.

Mr. Sani, a brigadier general, promised to provide details of the development later.

Nearly 300 girls were kidnapped by the insurgents from a government boarding school in the northeastern town of Chibok in April 2014.

In May, one of the girls escaped. In October, the government negotiated the release of 21 more. Another girl was freed in November in an attack on an extremist camp in the Sambisa Forest.
