Maiduguri – 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.

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 (yesterday) 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.
