This is contained in a statement signed by the Acting Direct Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman.

According to the statement, Amina and Mohammed were examined at the 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 was handed over to Borno State Governor, His Excellency, Honourable Kashim Shetima, at Government house, Maiduguri Wednesday evening by the Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu in a brief ceremony.

It is believed that she will be taken to Abuja on Thursday along with her parents to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Meanwhile, Mohammed is undergoing further investigation at Joint Intelligence Centre. The statement also noted that Mohammed is well treated in line with Operation LAFIYA DOLE Rules of Engagement regarding insurgents who voluntarily surrender to the military.

    “The statement also noted that Mohammed Hayatu is well treated in line with Operation LAFIYA DOLE Rules of Engagement regarding insurgents who voluntarily surrender to the military”

    What kind of injustice is this? An innocent girl was kidnapped, forced into marriage, raped and impregnated by this monster and he is “well treated”?

    What about the others who were killed?!!!!

      Puzzles, if they don’t treat him right, organisations like Amnesty International will be on their case, shouting about human rights violations.

    My heart breaks for the girls, women and children who are the major victims of this insurgency. Especially for the childten who were born to captive girls/women, fathered by these Boko Haram devils. I pray and hope fervently that when the joy of being reunited with their family does down, these babies and their mothers will not become stigmatised by their families and communities for being “Boko Haram offspring”. The government should take special interest and care of such women and children. Ensure they are well taken care of, give them a means of livelihood, pay close attention to ensure they are not being stigmatised and/or neglected by their communities and if they are, pull them out and take them to safe havens where they will be educated and empowered with a source of livelihood. I fear that if this is not done, we will find ourselves in a vicious insurgency cycle, where such children, neglected by their communities and embittered, will turn to a life of crime. The government and developmental partners and agencies like UNICEF, WHO, UNFPA, IOM, DFID, MSF, UNDP can achieve this easily.

    Her freedom should pave way for the other girls. Instead of all the meetings and reception immediate action should be taken to find others.

    Boko haram is nothing but a bunch of bandits,cheats and rapists.Which religion taught them that you can marry a girl/woman to another man when you not the parent? it is illegal and immoral to refer this bastard as the husband to the innocent girl.
