Troops of Operations Hadin Kai, have confirmed the rescue of another Chibok school girl, Ruth Bitrus, who escaped from Boko Haram captivity with her child.
Theatre Commander of Operations Hadin Kai, Major General GC Musa, made this known in Maimalarin Barracks during the official handing over of medical equipment by the North-East Development Commission to support the military on Wednesday.
“You would recall that some weeks ago, we rescued two Chibok girls and their children, I will like to inform you that we have rescued another in the course of our operations.
“We will not rest until Leah Shaibu and other Chibok girls are returned and united with their families. We won’t rest until all of them are safely returned. Ruth Britus was rescued from Sambisa forest with her son,” Maj Gen. Musa said.
Recall that Nigerian troops last month had rescued two Chibok girls, Mary Dauda and Hauwa Joseph, after they escaped from Boko Haram camp in Gazuwa, located about 9 kilometres to Bama Local Government Area of Borno.
