One of the Chibok schoolgirls abducted by insurgents in 2014 have been rescued by Nigerian troops.
Yana Pogu was rescued alongside her four children on Thursday, September 29, in Borno by troops of the Nigerian Army under Operation Hadin Kai.
Zagazola, a publication focused on counter-insurgency operations in the Lake Chad region, stated that Pagu’s four-month-old twins were in an unhealthy condition when she was rescued.
This came after troops engaged and overwhelmed the insurgents, neutralizing many of them.
A source told the publication;
“In the course of the encounter, troops successfully rescued Yana Pogu, a Chibok girl who was number 19 on the missing girl’s list along with her four children.
“She was found with a four-month-old set of twins in a very unhealthy condition.
“Some of the fleeing insurgents also attempted to ambush their own troops but while acting on the intelligence, the troops responded swiftly with aggressive fire powers, forcing them to flee.
“More women were rescued after the encounter. They are transferred to 21 Armoured Brigade Bama, for medical attention.”
