The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG), a group of campaigners pressing the Federal Government to secure the release of Chibok schoolgirls has said Salomi Pogu, rescued by the military was on No 15 on the list of the missing girls and not 86 as claimed by the military.
“She is Number 15 on the publicly known list of missing #ChibokGirls NOT Number 86 as the statement by the military said,” Sesugh Akume
#BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) spokesman, Sesugh Akume, said in a statement, on Thursday.
He said the group has confirmed that the news of Salomi release is true.
“Salomi Pogu is a daughter of Mallam Pogu Yahi from Kaumutahyahi, a village in Kuburmbula ward of Chibok LGA. Both her parents are currently IDPs in Rumirgo Village, in nearby Askira/Uba LGA in Borno State,” Akume disclosed.
He however commended the military for bringing down the number of the missing girls with the rescue of Salomi at Pulka, Borno State from 113 to 112.
The military has claimed Salomi was on number 86 on the lists of Chibok school girls yet to be seen.
This brings the number of our missing #ChibokGirls to 112.
We are yet to ascertain further details about Jamila Adams and the baby.
