Second rescued chibok girl is not part of 219 abducted – Oby Ezekwesili, BBOG
The BringBackOurGirls group yesterday confirmed that the second Chibok girl returnee, Miss Serah Luka, was not among the 276 girls that Boko Haram abducted over two years ago.
The Nigerian Army had claimed on Thursday night that a second Chibok girl, Miss Serah Luka, was rescued.
Serah’s rescue came as Miss Amina Ali, who was rescued on Wednesday by members of the Civilian Joint Task Force (JTF) on the fringes of Sambisa, was flown in a presidential jet with her family to Abuja, where she met with President Muhammadu Buhari at Presidential Villa in Abuja.
A statement by the Nigerian Army spokesman, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman had said Serah, who was Number 157 on the list of the abducted schoolgirls, was a Junior Secondary School One (JSS1) student of Government Secondary School, Chibok, at the time of her abduction, and was believed to be the daughter of Pastor Luka.
The army claimed that Miss Luka was a JSS1 student at the time of her abduction ran contrary to what had been reported consistently for two years that the 276 girls who were abducted by Boko Haram were Senior Secondary School Three (SS3) students who were in school taking their West African School Certificate examination.
