One of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls has escaped from Boko Haram captivity.
Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, confirmed this to the State House correspondents in Abuja on Wednesday, May 17.
Adesina said Acting President Yemi Osinbajo announced the girl’s escape during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
The girl is said to have been brought to Abuja to join her colleagues who were recently rescued from the terror group.
This is coming days after 82 of the kidnapped girls were released to the Federal Government – they were freed on May 6, 2017 – in exchange for some Boko Haram prisoners.
About 276 girls were kidnapped from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state on April 14, 2014.
But 57 of the girls escaped the night they were kidnapped while three of them were later found.
In October 2016, 21 of the girls were released by the sect, which was the first batch of the prisoners’ swap deal with the government.
