On Monday (April 14, 2014) , members from the Boko Haram Islamic sect had kidnapped upwards of 200 students in a nighttime raid on the school. They were heavily armed, and some wore military uniforms in an attack that included several fires, with an exchange of gunfire on the state run school.
According to reports on Saharareporters.commore students from the Government Girls' Secondary School, in Chibok, have been freed yesterday evening (Thursday April 17, 2014) in the ongoing Search & Rescue operations to free the abducted students.
With this new development, the Principal of the school has confirmed that only 8 of the students are still missing. 16 of the reported 200 students had escaped as one of the vehicles driven by the Boko Haram sect had broken down during the Monday evening raid. One of the terrorists who carried out the attack on the school has also been captured.
The military remains in hot pursuit of Boko Haram militants in their intervention and search and rescue operation. A Nigerian military spokesman had said the operation will continue to ensure the safety of the remaining students is ongoing in the suspected areas.
