15 out of the 103 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram men escape
The girls were said to have made their escape when one of the lorries used in transporting them broke down along the road. The girls jumped down from the lorry and ran into the bush around them.
One of the girls who fled told AFP that they escaped when the men were trying to fix the vehicle.
"They tried to fix it. It was at this moment that some of us jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the bush".
Meanwhile reports say Military personnel are currently combing the bushes in Borno state, using the trye tracks of the vehicles used by the Boko Harm men.
According to Senator Ali Ndume, the senator representing the region in the senate house, surveillance helicopters have also been employed in the search patrol team
"They are now combing the forest to rescue the girls. They are being aided by surveillance helicopters" he said.
