Wanawake 293 waokolewa msituni Nigeria

The kidnapping of the Chibok girls sparked international condemnation with Michelle Obama taking part in a campaign called 'Bring Back Our Girls' 
The Nigerian army has rescued 200 girls and 93 women who had been captured by terror group Boko Haram. 

It came during a military operation to wrest back the Sambisa Forest in the north east of the country from the Islamist militant group. 

However, it has been confirmed that those rescued were not the girls who were kidnapped from the village of Chibok, a year ago.

The army posted on their Twitter feed: 'Troops this afternoon rescued 200 girls and 93 women from Sambisa Forest. 

'We cannot confirm if the Chibok girls are in this group,' it said, adding that Nigerian troops had also destroyed three camps run by the militants.

The rescued girls and women will be screened on Wednesday to determine whether they had been abducted or if they were married to the militants, one intelligence source said.
 Last week, Nigeria marked the first anniversary since the girls went missing with a march through the country's capital 
'Now they are excited about their freedom,' he added. 

'Tomorrow there will also be screenings to determine whether they are Boko Haram wives, whether they are from Chibok, how long they have been in the camps, and if they have children.'

Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls near the northern village of Chibok in April 2014, sparking international outcry.

They were taken away in trucks on the night of April 14 to 15, after the terrorists from Boko Haram - meaning 'Western education is sinful' - broke into their school by pretending to be guards.

The students were forced to convert to Islam and marry group members.
