” %It will be recalled that in the course of continued clearance operations on the vestiges of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists, Nigerian troops of 21 Brigade and 26 Task Force Brigade, Operation HADIN KAI have discovered and rescued two of the abducted Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS) Chibok girls some days ago. The two, Hauwa Joseph and Mary Dauda with their sons, were rescued by troops of the 21 Brigade around Bama, and the 26 Task Force Brigade in Ngoshe, respectively.

“Hauwa Joseph, now about 27 years old, with her one-year-old child Usman, were rescued by troops on 12th June 2022, while on fighting patrol in Hujum Ngazua, Sambisa Forest, around Bama general area. She was believed to be on serial number 18 of the abducted students of GGSS Chibok. It will be recalled that Hauwa, who hailed from Mbalala in Askira Uba Local Government Area, was kidnapped along with her colleagues by Boko Haram terrorists on 14th April 2014. She was forcefully married to one of the Boko Haram terrorists’ kingpins, Munzur Abba. However, troops killed him on 22nd May 2022 during one of their operations, thus facilitating her escape and subsequent rescue.

“On her part, Mary Dauda, with her son Ayuba, was intercepted on 14th June 2022 by troops on fighting patrol around Gava, Gwoza general area. She was also among the female students of GGSS Chibok kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists on 14th April 2014 in the night. She is on serial number 46, on the list of the abducted GGSS Chibok school girls. She hailed from Rimingo, Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State. Like most other girls, she was forcefully married to one of the Boko Haram terrorists. However, he was killed along with over 50 other insurgents on 22nd May 2022 following an air raid by the air component of Operation HADIN KAI at Sabil Huda, inside Sambisa Forest.

“Both of them, including the children, have been evacuated to the Headquarters, 7 Division in Maiduguri. They are currently undergoing further medical check-ups and rehabilitation. Although both looked traumatised, they were stable. Reports, however, state that their children, Ayuba and Usman, have symptoms of malnutrition.

“It is interesting to note that although they were friends at the GGSS Chibok, their School before their abduction and had never met while in captivity.

When they met, they could not hide their happiness as they had not seen each other since their captivity. The rescued women have been showering encomiums on the Nigerian military for their sterling efforts that saved them from captivity.”
