Amina Ali, the Chibok schoolgirl rescued from the captivity of Boko Haram on Wednesday, was conveyed to Aso Rock in a presidential jet.

Ali and her parents are expected to meet President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday.

The military handed her over to Kashim Shettima, governor of Borno state, ahead of the meeting.

She was flown from Damboa, a Borno town, where she was interrogated, to Maiduguri, where she was handed over to the state government.

“She was airlifted by Nigeria Air Force Super Puma aircraft  from Damboa to Maiduguri alongside her baby and supposed husband, Mohammed Hayatu,” Sani Usman, spokesman of the army, said in a statement.

Ali is the first Chibok girl to be rescued.

A total of 276 girls were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, on April 14, 2014, while 57 managed to escape, the remaining have been in captivity.

Shortly after their abduction, Abubakar Shekau, leader of the sect, released a video saying they had been married off.
