The rescued Chibok school girl, Amina Ali, was airlifted by Nigeria Air Force Super Puma aircraft from Damboa to Maiduguri alongside her baby and supposed husband, Mohammed Hayatu.

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.

According to a statement by Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, after preliminary investigation, the rescued girl and her baby were handed over to Borno State Governor, Kashim Shetima, at Government house, Maiduguri last night by the Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu in a brief ceremony.

She will be brought to Abuja today along with her parents to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

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.
