During Monday’s event, the Theatre Commander, Major General Gold Chibuisi, disclosed that Mary had been rescued by troops of the Nigerian Army in Dikwa on August 14.

He further stated that the rescued schoolgirl had undergone immediate medical checks at the Army’s facility and had been certified as stable. She will now be handed over to the state government for further assessment.

The commander’s announcement marked the sixteenth successful rescue of a Chibok schoolgirl in 2023, providing hope and relief in the ongoing efforts to bring these young women back to safety.
