Hundreds of kidnapped girls rescued after seven years

According to foreign media, clashes with extremist groups have occurred in Nigeria, a country in northeast Africa, in recent years, but peace and stability have yet to be established.

The Nigerian militant group Boko Haram is carrying out terrorist acts to destabilize the country, including terrorist attacks in public places and the abduction of women and girls.

Most of the women and girls abducted by Boko Haram have been killed or detained by terrorists, but several abducted girls have been rescued.

More than 300 girls who were recently abducted by Boko Haram seven years ago have been rescued and returned to their homes.

According to the French news agency AFP, some 300 girls between the ages of 12 and 17 were abducted by Boko Haram in 2014 in northern Nigeria.

The kidnapping of school-age girls was strongly condemned internationally and a campaign called “Bring Our Girls Back” was launched for their release.

A statement from the Nigerian state governor’s office on Saturday confirmed the girls’ return.

It should be noted that the Nigerian Armed Forces are still fighting to end the ongoing jihadist insurgency in the northeast of the country. So far, the conflict has killed 40,000 people and left 2 million homeless.
