Rescued Chibok schoolgirl, Amina Ali-Nkeki, on Thursday arrived at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for audience with President Muhammadu Buhari. The girl, her baby, her mother and her brother, were led to the villa by Borno state governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, at about 2.46 p.m.

The governor and the girl, with her child were quickly taken to the president’s office by his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Abba Kyari, for a closed-door interaction with the president. The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the girl and her baby were dressed in hijab and were shielded from newsmen by security officials.

The statement issued by acting spokesman of the army, Col. Sani Usman, said that the girl was among other persons rescued by troops at Baale community near Damboa in Borno State.
