Acting President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday confirmed that another Chibok schoolgirl had been found, barely 12 days after the release of 82 by their Boko Haram captors.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina said the recovery of the girl was announced by the acting president during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
“Yes, at the Federal Executive Council’s meeting, the Vice President broke the cheering news to members of the cabinet and after that I have also spoken to Defence people who confirmed it.
“The details are yet to fully unravel. But in terms of if it is true, yes, it is true. I learnt she is already being brought to Abuja, but I have not seen her.
The presidential aide expressed the hope that the remaining Chibok schoolgirls and other Nigerians in captivity would soon be rescued.
He dismissed the claim that members of the Boko Haram sect had started regrouping in the Sambisa Forest, saying that the Federal Government had the capacity to confront any security challenge arising from any part of the country.
