A second missing Chibok girl has been found in Nigeria, two years after she and 275 others were taken from their secondary school.

Army spokesman Colonel Sani Usman “has confirmed the rescue of another Chibok girl this evening”, a statement said, without giving further details.

The news comes just two days after another of the abducted students was found.

Activists named her as Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki and quoted her as saying that most of the girls were still in the Sambisa forest, Boko Haram’s biggest stronghold.

But the 19-year-old, traumatised and carrying a baby, was quoted as saying that six of her classmates were already dead.

She and her mother met Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari at his official residence in Abuja on Thursday, where he said the government was “doing all it can to rescue the remaining Chibok girls”.

“Amina’s rescue gives us new hope and offers a unique opportunity for vital information,” he said in a statement.

There was international outrage when 276 girls – mostly aged between 16 and 18 – were abducted from their school during a Boko Haram raid on Chibok in April 2014.
