Nwachukwu said the Chibok girl was rescued in Pulka alongside a 14-year old girl who was also kidnapped by Boko Haram.

Last May, Boko Haram exchanged 82 of the girls after mediation, involving a payment to the insurgents and the release of some of the group's imprisoned senior members.

On Oct. 13, 2016, some 21 of the girls were released by their abductors following a fruitful negotiation with the Nigerian government.
