It is however not clear if any of the rescued hostages
were part of the Chibok girls the notorious group abducted in the Borno State
community last year in April. Efforts to rescue them have been unsuccessful so

rally behind the military and security agencies in the fight against
insurgency, so that the fight can be won. We look forward to the freedom of our
girls,” the group said this past weekend.

appealing for the rescue of the school girls kidnapped in Chibok, among other
victims of the Boko Haram’s reign of terror.
