The rescued Chibok school girl, Amina Ali, will likely be brought to Abuja today (Thursday) along with her baby and parents to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, dropped this hint last night.

He disclosed in a statement that Amina “was airlifted by Nigeria Air Force Super Puma aircraft from Damboa to Maiduguri alongside her baby and supposed husband, Mohammed Hayatu.” Continuing, Col. Usman said: “Prior to that they were examined at Air Force medical facility and were found to be stable and normal blood pressure was observed. Thereafter, she was released to the Operation LAFIYA DOLE headquarters for further investigation and handing over.

“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 by the Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu, in a brief ceremony.

“Meanwhile, the supposed husband is undergoing further investigation at Joint Intelligence Centre. It should be noted that Mohammed Hayatu is well treated in line with Operation LAFIYA DOLE Rules of Engagement regarding insurgents who voluntarily surrender to the military.”
