    ABUJA: A second Chibok schoolgirl has been rescued, Nigeria’s army said Thursday, after President Muhammadu Buhari met the first student to be found and voiced fresh hope for the recovery of the more than 200 others still being held. Army spokesman Colonel Sani Usman said the student was found by troops and civilian vigilantes at about 11 a.m. (1000 GMT) on Thursday in the Damboa area of Borno state, northeast Nigeria, during military operations. “Her name is Miss Serah Luka,” he added in a statement, saying she was believed to be a Christian pastor’s daughter and originally from Madagali, in neighboring Adamawa state.
