Nigerian forces rescue two of the girls kidnapped in Chibok in 2014

June 22 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Nigerian Armed Forces have rescued two of the more than 200 girls who were kidnapped in April 2014 by the terrorist group Boko Haram in an assault on a secondary school in the town of Chibok, in Borno state.

The two young women have two children of a year and a half and, according to the authorities, they had been forced to marry other terrorists after their first husbands died in military operations.

Once they are examined by a doctor, they will be at the disposal of the Government, which is responsible for reuniting these young women with their families, according to the Nigerian newspaper ‘Vanguard’.


One of the commanders of the Armed Forces in the east, Christopher Musa, has underlined the commitment of the institution to try to locate the Chibok girls who are still captive –more than a hundred–, as well as other kidnapped hostages by terrorist organizations in the area.
