Military Grills Alleged Abductor Of Rescued Chibok Girl, Amina Nkeki
Mohammad Hayyatu, the self-acclaimed husband of a rescued Chibok girl, Amina Ali Nkeki, has been taken into military custody for interrogation, The Nation learnt yesterday.
The young mother will be sent to a special rehabilitation centre.
Hayyatu is being treated as a suspected Boko Haram terrorist. Intelligence officers have been grilling him.
Hayyatu might be separated with Amina and her baby for life if he is found culpable of dastardly conduct as a Boko Haram “commander”.
For security reasons, the 19-year old Amina will be put in a rehabilitation facility with her mother to enable her take care of her baby.
It was gathered that a rehabilitation facility has been built for strategic victims of Boko Haram, especially the Chibok girls.
A top military source said: “Hayyatu is being treated as a Boko Haram commander and he is being interrogated at a military facility. He is a suspected insurgent and if he is culpable of all these atrocities, he will face trial accordingly.
“The military has detained him for profiling by the Intelligence Unit. He can be released only if at the end of the day he is innocent.
“With this development, there is no opportunity of reuniting with Amina or the baby.”
On the girl from GSS Chibok, Sarah Luka, the military source said: “Once we rescue Boko Haram victims, we hand them over to relevant civil authorities and agencies. She will also undergo a rehabilitation process like Amina.”
Amina will be put in a designated rehabilitation facility alongside her mother.
Another source said: “For security reasons, we will relocate Amina and the mother to a safe rehabilitation facility which has been created by the government. I cannot tell you whether this rehabilitation facility is in Abuja or Maiduguri.
“What is important is that they will be put in a facility where Amina can be psychologically secured and under the guidance of her mother because she is a kid-mother. The facility will enable her to raise her child under the care of her mum.
“We have to work on her psyche to forget about this forceful marriage, the trauma in Sambisa Forest and to allow her to think of how to go back to school for a brighter future.”
President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday assured Amina of the best medical and emotional care.
He said: “Although, we cannot do anything to reverse the horrors of her past, the Federal Government can and will do everything possible to ensure that the rest of her life takes a completely different course.
“Amina will get the best care that the Nigerian government can afford. We will ensure that she gets the best medical, emotional and whatever care that she requires to get full recovery and be integrated into the society.”
