The Borno state Governor,  Kashim Shettima  said the Boko Haram sect is deadlier than ISIS and  Al Shabab.

He said “Boko Haram is worse than other ter¬ror groups in the world. It is worse than ISIS, Al Shabab or any group.”

This is coming on the heels of the rescue of one of the Chibok girls, Amina Nkeki Ali, by Nigerian Army troops, around Sambisa forest.

The 19 year old also told investigators that six of her friends had died in the forest.

Reports say the rescued teenager was seen breastfeeding a baby, alongside a man, who claims to be her husband.

Amina was immediately taken to Borno state, to meet with the Borno state Governor, reports say.

The co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign (BBOG), Oby Ezekwesili, also announced the rescue of the Chibok girl on her Twitter page.

 

President Muhammadu Buhari also said the Nigerian Army could not wipe out Boko Haram on time, because of corruption.
