Rescued Chibok Girl, Parents Meet With President Buhari


The rescued Chibok girl, Amina Ali, is expected to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Thursday in company of her parents, the Defence Headquarters has announced.



    This was contained in a statement posted on the official Defence Facebook page.

    According to the statement, Ali and her four months old baby were yesterday handed over to Governor Kashim Shettima on behalf of Borno State after being medically examined at the Air Force medical facility and certified okay.

    “After preliminary investigation, the rescued girl and her baby has been handed over to Borno State Governor, His Excellency, Honourable Kashim Shetima, at Government house, Maiduguri this evening (Wednesday) by the Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu in a brief ceremony,” the statement read.

    Ali’s supposed husband, Mohammed Hayatu, who was arrested on Wednesday, is still undergoing interrogation at the Joint Intelligence Centre and is treated in line with the counterinsurgency rules of engagement regarding members of Boko Haram who voluntarily give up their arms.
