After two years of a mother’s harrowing trauma of bearing the kidnap of her only child, respite came when the Civilian Vigilante group and the Nigerian Army flushed the Sambisa forest and rescued the teenage girl and her illegitimate child.
Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki remains the only Chibok school girl abducted by Boko Haram terrorist group, among the 276 school girls kidnapped two years ago, that has been brought to safety by the Nigerian Army.
The Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, confirmed that the troops of 25 Brigade Damboa rescued Amina, her suspected Boko Haram terrorist husband, Mohammed Hayatu and their four month old baby girl – Safiya.
In a BBC Africa report, the abducted girl’s mother, Binta Ali Nkeki, on sighting her only child, “shouted Amina, Amina!
“she gave her the biggest hug ever, as if they were going to roll on the ground.”
The Chibok girl’s mother overwhelmed by emotion was calmed down by the girl who pleaded saying: “ please mum, take it easy, relax, I never thought I would ever see you again, wipe your tears. God has made it possible for us to see each other again.”
The army said the rescued Chibok school girl, her child and Boko Haram Husband have been taken to Maiduguri for further medical attention and screening, while the Boko Haram suspect will be questioned to help with further investigations.
Meanwhile, the BringBackOurGirls group have expressed gratitude to the Nigerian Army and Vigilante groups and called for more support as they noted that of the 218 still missing, hope remains alive by the one found alive and brought back home.
