The Army Spokesperson, Colonel Usman Sani Kukasheka has confirmed the rescue of another Chibok Girl this evening.
This is coming after the rescue of Amina Ali who was flown to Abuja today where she met with President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Villa.
The Army Spokesperson promised to provide more details later.
Meanwhile Amina Ali Nkeki, 19, was found with a baby by an army-backed vigilante group on Tuesday in the huge Sambisa Forest, close to the border with Cameroon.
She was one of 219 pupils missing since being abducted from a secondary school in the town of Chibok in April 2014.
Mr Buhari said he was delighted she was back and could resume her education.
“But my feelings are tinged with deep sadness at the horrors the young girl has had to go through at such an early stage in her life,” he said in a statement published on Facebook.
“Although we cannot do anything to reverse the horrors of her past, federal government can and will do everything possible to ensure that the rest of her life takes a completely different course.
“Amina will receive the best care that the Nigerian government can afford. We will ensure that she gets the best medical, psychological, emotional and whatever other care she requires to make a full recovery and be reintegrated fully into society.”
