Controversy is trailing the rescue of second Chibok girl abducted by Boko Haram from Chibok Government Secondary School. This is coming after the military earlier today confirmed that a second Chibok school girl has been rescued among other 97 women.
“At about 11.00am yesterday, Thursday, 19th May 2016, troops of 231 Battalion, 331 Artillery Regiment (AR), Detachment of Armed Forces Special Forces (AFSF) 2, Explosive Ordinance (EOD) Team and Civilian Vigilante group of Buratai, conducted clearance operations at Shettima Aboh, Hong and Biladdili general area in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State. 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,” the military said in a statement.
However, according to Saharareporters, none of the missing girls is called Serah Luka. They claimed to have called two parent of the girls and they said that ‘Serah Luka’ is not on their list as one of the missing girls. “Two of the parents spoke to @SaharaReporters saying they don’t have any “Serah Luka” on their list of kidnapped Chibok girls,” they tweeted.
It was rather disclosed that Serah Luka was kidnapped from their home and not among the Chibok girls. “Haruna Mutali, a community leader in Chibok says Serah Luka was a student at GSS Chibok but was kidnapped at her home in Madagali,” the website said.
