Ruth Ngladar Pogu, a Chibok girl who has been in Boko Haram captivity for seven years, has returned home with two children she had for a member of the terrorist group.
Ruth and her husband surrendered to Nigerian troops on July 28 at a location in Bama, Borno State.
Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum, who confirmed the return of the girl, said her presence would rekindle the hope of parents and other family members of Chibok girls still in captivity.
“I am extremely excited both as Borno’s governor and father of all sons and daughters of the state and also as a father to daughters.
“I know the feeling of families of those still under captivity but we have to remain hopeful especially with today’s development.”
Zulum also commiserated with families of those whose daughters were still in captivity and urged them to remain optimistic and prayerful.
Recall that over 200 schoolgirls were, on April 14, 2014, abducted when Boko Haram terrorists stormed Government Girls’ Secondary School (GGSS), Chibok.
No fewer than 103 have so far been rescued in the last seven years.
The governor, however, received Ruth at the Government House on Saturday where she reunited with her parents.
Zulum also stated that the girl would undergo a rehabilitation and reintegration programme focusing on her health, psychosocial wellbeing and her future goals.
