Controversy continues to trail the class of the second Chibok school, Serah Luka, allegedly rescued by the Nigerian military on Thursday in Borno.
While the army claims that Serah Luka was in JSS1, the Bring Back Our Girls have insisted that she was an SSS1 student of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, at the time of her abduction.
It would be recalled that the Borno state government had claimed that the 276 abducted schoolgirls were in SSS3, and were about sitting for their WASC examination when Boko Haram abducted them.
A Chibok community leader, Sesugh Akume, in a statement on Friday said: “We are excited with the news of yet another rescued Chibok girl.
“According to Haruna Mutali a community leader in Chibok, their background checks have revealed that this second returnee, Miss Serah Luka was an SSS 1 learner at GSS Chibok, who was abducted by the insurgents in her home in Madagali.
“Every citizen returned is victory for us all.
“We appeal to the humanity in us to stay positively focused on emerging developments. We wish to advice caution in disseminating information too promptly, as we appeal that we respect the human dignity of our returnees and their loved ones, as we engage on this topic.
“We commend the gallant Nigerian army, the Civilian JTF, and the other security forces. We are strongly with you, as through great sacrifice you annihilate the insurgents, return our compatriots, reclaim our territories, and restore peace and normality especially in northeast Nigeria.”
