“It is understood the girls are being held by the security services in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri”, BBC reported.

It is not yet clear how the girls were rescued, but the Nigerian military is currently carrying out a large-scale operation in the Sambisa forest, Boko Haram’s stronghold.

Recall that the Islamist militant group kidnapped more than 200 girls from a school in Chibok in April 2014.

However, the Federal Government is yet to issue a statement on the matter.
