Yana Pogu, one of the 270 abducted Chibok schoolgirls, on Thursday, Sept. 29, regained her freedom as soldiers from the Nigerian army raided another enclave of insurgents where she was found nursing a set of twins that she delivered four months ago.
Pogu also had two other older children with her when she was rescued.
Military sources familiar with the development informed HumAngle that the nursing mother who was found in a poor state of health was rescued at the Bula Dawo axis of the Sambisa forest in Bama local government area, Borno state, Northeast Nigeria.
The said troops carrying out the counterinsurgency operation in the region, codenamed Operation Hadin Kai, fought into the fortified enclave of the insurgents and rescued many civilians, including the Chibok girl and her set of twins.
The rescued schoolgirl, Yana Pogu, was the number 19th on the list of missing schoolgirls publicised by the military since they went missing in April 2014.
She is the ninth on the list of rescued abducted Chibok Schoolgirls this year.
