While it is far fetched that the abductor (a Boko Haram insurgent) of Chibok girl, Amina Ali would accompany her to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari – several inquisitive souls still pondered on the veracity of what is ordinarily an anomaly.
Many have wondered why Amina’s captor and father of her baby is being called her ‘Boko Haram husband’ while others simply can’t be convinced that he didn’t follow her to the presidential villa.
One of such persons is singer – J Martins.
He took to his Instagram page to ponder aloud.
“I am trying to understand the logic in this. I am told one of the men in the picture below is a “repentant” Boko Haram member who is the “husband” of the young girl who is allegedly one of the Chibok girls said to have been forcefully abducted from her school over 750 days ago.
(1) Why is a man who was part of a terrorist criminal group that attacked and firebombed a school, killing the security guards, and abducting hundreds of young girls in a picture with the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria?
(2) Why is the abductor and serial rapist of a minor being referred to as her “husband” when he traumatised her and her family by kidnapping her and forcefully separating her from her parents for over 2 full years, a man who did not marry her with the approval of her family?
(3) Why was this criminal given a State reception and a Presidential handshake?
(4) Why is this felon not in chains and inside a dark dungeon giving valuable Intel to the security agencies to help them track down his fellow barbarians? * Is there something I am missing?”
Yes J Martins, there’s something you and millions of Nigerians are missing.
Bashir Ahmad, Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media has now pointed it out.
And the presidency also gave some more information to serve as clarification.
“Our attention has been drawn to rumours and insinuations that the young man who accompanied Amina Ali to the State House to meet President Buhari is her alleged terrorist abductor.”
“This is false; there is absolutely no truth to it. The young man who was in the State House (extreme left, in the photograph below) alongside Amina and her baby and mother, is her older brother.”
“He is different from the man who appeared with her in photos released by the Nigerian military, in the immediate aftermath of Amina’s rescue.
All insinuations alleging otherwise are false, mischievous, and should be wholly disregarded. Under no circumstances will a presidential welcome be extended to terrorists or abductors.”
