“During the operations, the troops killed 35 Boko Haram terrorists and recovered several arms and ammunitions and other items.

“In addition, they rescued 97 women and children held captives by the Boko Haram terrorists. We are glad to state that among those rescued is a girl believed to be one of the Chibok Government Secondary School girls that were abducted on 14th April 2014 by the Boko Haram terrorists.

“Her name is Miss Serah Luka, who is number 157 on the list of the abducted school girls. She is believed to be the daughter of Pastor Luka.

“During debriefing the girl revealed that she was a JSS1 student of the school at the time they were abducted. She further added that she hails from Madagali, Adamawa State.

“She averred that she reported at the school barely two months and one week before her unfortunate abduction along with other girls over two years ago. She added that there other three girls who fled from Shettima Aboh when the troops invaded the area earlier today which led to their rescue.

“She is presently receiving medical attention at the medical facility of Abogo Largema Cantonment, Biu, Borno State, the statement concludes.

One question begs to be answered. The girls were abducted during a WAEC exam which happened during holiday and the girls as was said conveyed from many schools to Chibok to per-take in the Exam.

What was a Jss1 student doing in school during a holiday time /WAEC extension class? How come the rescued girl said she just started the enrollment before the incident? Does any school in Nigeria admit during a holiday period in April /or Third Term?
