Buhari to meet with rescued Chibok girl

19 May 2016, 16:07

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari is set to meet with the first Chibok girl that was rescued by the military on Wednesday, New Telegraph reports.

Amina Ali Nkeki, 19, was found with a baby by an army-backed vigilante group on Tuesday in the Sambisa Forest, close to the border with Cameroon.

She was one of 219 pupils missing since they were abducted from a secondary school in eastern Chibok in April 2014 by Boko Haram militants.

Nkeki who has had an emotional reunion with her mother - is expected to arrive in the country's capital Abuja later on Thursday to meet President Buhari according to BBC.

Buhari's spokesman said the young woman would then be helped to reintegrate into society.

A video broadcast in April this year appeared to show some of the kidnapped schoolgirls alive.

Fifteen girls in black robes were pictured. They said they were being treated well but wanted to be with their families.
