Another abducted Chibok schoolgirl, Lydia Simon, has been rescued by troops of Operation Desert Sanity III under the North-East Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) on Wednesday.

She was rescued along with her three children by the troops of 82 Division Task Force Battalion in Gwoza LGA of Borno State on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, exactly 10 years after she was kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists alongside over 200 schoolgirls from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State on April 14, 2014.

Intelligence sources, according to Zagazola Makama, a Counter Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad region, revealed that Lydia, who was tagged serial number 68 among the abducted schoolgirls, escaped from the camp of Ali Ngulde in Mandara Mountain where she was held in captivity for several years.


She surrendered to troops of 82 Division Task Force Battalion at Ngoshe in Gwoza LGA of the State. The rescued Chibok girl was five months pregnant and claimed she was from Pemi Town in Chibok LGA.

April 14, 2024, marks the 10th anniversary of the violent abduction of 276 girls from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, by Boko Haram insurgents.

While 57 of the girls escaped from their captors in the following days, 16 were later rescued and 107 had at different times been released through negotiations.

The Federal and Borno State Governments, including the Nigerian Army, have pledged their commitment toward rescuing the rest of the abducted schoolgirls that were still held in captivity by the terrorists.
