One of the “Chibok girls” abducted by Islamist group Boko Haram in 2014 has been rescued, Nigeria’s military says.
According to a BBC report, the girl is in “the safe custody of troops and receiving medical attention”, it said in a statement.
More than 270 girls were kidnapped by the group from a school in the north-eastern town of Chibok.
The military say that the girl was rescued in Pulka in northern Borno state, which is more than 160km (100 miles) from the town.
They say she was discovered with a 14-year-old girl who was with a child but neither was identified as being part of the Chibok group.
More than 100 of the 276 kidnapped schoolgirls are still being held by Boko Haram and their whereabouts is unknown.
