President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday received the rescued Chibok girl, Amina Ali Nkeki at the Presidential Villa.

Amina, her baby, her mother, and her brother were led to the Villa by Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima, Special Adviser to President Buhari (Social Investment), Maryam Uwais, and Hadiza Bala Usman of the Bring Back Our Girls Advocacy Group

You can watch the video below:

After receiving the girl, the president released the following statement:

Like all Nigerians and many others around the world, I am delighted at the news that Amina Ali Nkeki, one of the missing Chibok girls has regained her freedom. But my feelings are tinged with deep sadness at the horrors the young girl has had to go through at such an early stage in her life.

Although we cannot do anything to reverse the horrors of her past, federal government can and will do everything possible to ensure that the rest of her life takes a completely different course. Amina will receive the best care that the Nigerian government can afford. We will ensure that she gets the best medical, psychological, emotional and whatever other care she requires to make a full recovery and be reintegrated fully into society.

Yesterday, medical personnel from Government and other NGOs examined her for a total of about five hours. Trauma experts from the UNICEF also met her. The Federal Government will assist Murtala Muhammed Foundation, which has already been providing support to the families of the missing Chibok girls and which runs a trauma and counselling centre in Kano, will also be involved in ongoing work with Amina, monitoring her progress and highlighting any additional support she requires.

The continuation of Amina’s education, so abruptly disrupted, will definitely be a priority of the federal government. Amina must be enabled to go back to school. No girl in Nigeria should be put through the brutality of forced marriage. Every girl has the right to an education and a life choice.

Rest assured that this administration will continue to do all it can to rescue the remaining Chibok girls who are still in Boko Haram captivity. Amina’s rescue gives us new hope, and offers a unique opportunity for vital information.

May Allah crown our efforts with success.

    So let me try and understand this, she was rescued not by the military or police but a member of the civilian JTF……hmm………almost like having law enforcement from a community has its advantages, maybe just maybe having state policing may do more good than harm? Who am I kidding though, this is Nigeria.

    Scam indeed. Yes, it’s also a scam that US and UK governments found proof of life videos of the girls recently which was aired by CNN, and also those reports that the US and British foreign officials keep making about knowing the whereabouts of the girls is a scam. In fact the whole world is in cahoots with the Nigerian govt in perpetrating this scam.

    Small-minded people. When your mind cannot possibly conceive such a thing happening, you are quick to deny the existence and of course since you don’t personally know anyone who has been affected, it is a scam. You people are those who think life starts and ends in your little corner of the country – myopic.
