Army rescues another abducted Chibok schoolgirl, Ruth Bitrus, in Borno


The Nigerian Army has rescued another Chibok schoolgirl, Ruth Bitrus, who was kidnapped alongside many others from Government Girls Secondary School Chibok, in Borno State, on April 14, 2014.

Ruth and her son were rescued by the Troops of 21 Army Armoured Brigade in Bama, Borno State on Wednesday, June 29, after she escaped from the Boko Haram enclave in the axis of Bama local government area of the State.

In a video released by Zagazola Makama, a Counter Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad, Ruth said that she escaped from Sambisa forest eight years after she was kidnapped from her school in Chibok town by the Boko Haram terrorists.

She said that the terrorist who defiled her and got her pregnant was killed by a bomb while trying to plant it against the troops of Operation Hadin Kai in the North-East.

She added that other schoolgirls were still with their captors in Sambisa Forest.

“It took me three days to escape from the insurgents’ enclave. I took some food with me for my child. Some of the Boko Haram saw me while I was coming out but I ran to the bush to avoid being arrested,” she said

Recall that two weeks ago, the Troops had rescued two Chibok schoolgirls, Mary Dauda and Hauwa Joseph, after they escaped from Gazuwa camp, the acclaimed headquarters of the Jam?’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jih?d, a Boko Haram faction, formerly known as Gabchari, Mantari and Mallum Masari, located about nine kilometres to Bama LGA of Borno State.
