Amina Ali Nkeki, a 19 year old girl, suspected to be one of the abducted Chibok girls, was rescued by the Nigerian Army in Sambisa forest with a four month old baby and a man, Mohammad Hayyatu, who claimed to be her husband.

The Chibok community has however dismissed Hayyatu's claim, warning the media not to refer to the alleged Boko Haram member as their daughter’s husband.

The community spokesperson in Abuja, Tsambido Hosea, said Hayyatu exploited their daughter.

Premium Times reports that Hosea said “We condemn, in strong terms, the calling of Mohammad Hayyatu as Boko Haram husband of our daughter.

“Upon confirmation by the Nigerian Military, he should be referred to as a: “Boko Haram sexual exploiter.

“Amina had no husband and who ever that was rescued with her should not be referred to as her husband for any reason.

“Even if he is also abducted and forced to marry her, he should not be referred to in any way as her husband, because there was never consent in getting her with a baby.”

The community spokesperson also said “Even if he is also abducted and forced to marry her, he should not be referred to in any way as her husband, because there was never consent in getting her with a baby.”

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari also announced that the Federal Government will take responsibility for Amina's education.
