The Nigerian Army has rescued two Chibok girls: Hauwa Joseph and Mary Ngoshe in Bama and Gwoza local government areas of Borno State.
Military sources said yesterday that Hauwa Joseph and her child were rescued by the troops of 21 Army Armoured Brigade, Bama while Mary Ngoshe was seen during a patrol around Ngoshe in Gwoza local government area by the troops of 26 Task Force Brigade on 14th June, 2022.
The girls were kidnapped from their school in Chibok town on April 14, 2014, by Boko Haram during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
