President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday welcomed the recovery of another Chibok schoolgirl, Rakiya Abubakar, in the Alagarno area of Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President said the recovery raised renewed hope that the other captured girls will one day be reunited with their families, friends and community.

The President also commended the military for the diligent investigation which led to the recovery of Rakiya, and urged them to continue in the spirit with which they cleared the Sambisa forest of terrorists.

He assured that the federal government would continue to do all within its powers to assist the military in locating the rest of the girls and eradicating the menace of terrorism in the country.
