The abducted Yobe schoolgirls have been rescued by the military.
They were rescued at Jilli-Muwarti, a border village between Gaidam in Yobe state and Borno State.
A military source informed reporters that the students are on their way to Gaidam in Yobe state for medical check-up before proceeding to Damaturu, the state capital.
The girls were abducted when suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, in Yobe State.
Nigerians have earlier demanded for the release of the girls with the hashtag #Yobe94 on the social media.
