More Chibok School Girls Escape Boko Haram Captivity
Three more Chibok schoolgirls, Kauna Luka, Ruth Bitrus and Hanatu Musa, have regained freedom after escaping Boko Haram captivity in the Sambisa forest area of Borno state in northeastern Nigeria.
Abducted in their teens, the girls, now in their mid-20s and mothers, fled with their children. Ruth and Hanatu each had a child with them, while Kauna had two.
They escaped a few weeks after two other girls also regained freedom in June as part of a wave of defections and movement from Sambisa to government-controlled areas in the past months.
In August 2021, one of the missing school girls, Hassana Adamu, and her children were handed over to the government after she fled captivity. A few weeks after, another girl, Ruth Pogu with kids, regained freedom.
According to the commander of the counterinsurgency operation in the region Major General Chris Musa, an estimated 70,593 people associated with Boko Haram were received by authorities.
The Nigerian government had previously negotiated the release of 103 of their colleagues at different times between 2016 and May 2017.
The Chibok schoolgirls were abducted in April 2014 after Boko Haram stormed the Government Secondary School in the town of Chibok. Over a hundred have been released or escaped; many others are still unaccounted for.
