PostSubject: Rescued girls undergo pregnancy, HIV tests   2015-04-30, 04:02

The military authorities have taken
the 293 women and girls rescued
by the Special Forces during a raid
on the dreaded Sambisa Forest to
the University of Maiduguri
Teaching Hospital, Maiduguri, Borno
State.
An intelligence officer, who made
this known to one of our
correspondents on Wednesday,
also said the women and girls
were undergoing a series of tests,
including pregnancy and HIV in the
hospital.
The officer also said that seven of
the girls had gunshot injuries
which were being treated by the
medical officials of the UMTH.
Findings indicated that out of the
293 ladies, 200 were aged between
13 and 18, the age brackets of the
Chibok schoolgirls abducted by
Boko Haram insurgents on April 14,
2014.
When one of our correspondents
contacted the Director, Defence
Information, Maj. Gen. Chris.
Olukolade, to confirm the officer’s
information on the rescued
females, he said, “We will talk
about it when we are through; we
are busy moving them off the line
of duty for a thorough screening.
“The military would do everything
to take care of them and make
them feel not traumatised.”
Our source explained that the
military would on Thursday (today)
commence a holistic investigation
of the identities of the girls and
women after the tests and
treatment.
Another officer told The PUNCH that
the DHQ was being careful with
saying who the women and girls
were to avoid mistakes.
He said, “This is a sensitive matter
that has to be handled with
serious caution. You cannot say
before the commencement of the
investigation that they are the
Chibok girls or not.
“Another thing is that you cannot
start asking them if they are from
Chibok because of the harrowing
experiences or trauma they have
gone through.
“Clearly, it would be too early for
anybody to say that Chibok girls are
among them or not; they are under
custody; they went through trauma
and we want to them to have some
relief. Those with medical
requirements are being treated.
“But the military is very careful.
There is the need to ascertain their
true identities.
“There would be individual
interrogation of each of those
rescued, to ascertain their link with
the sect.”
However, the Borno State
Government said on Wednesday
that most of the ladies were from
Bumsiri, a village in Damboa Local
Government Area of the state.
The state’s Commissioner for
Information, Mohammed Bulama,
told journalists in Maiduguri that,
“The girls and women rescued are
our daughters just like the Chibok
girls. We have to commend the
military for liberating them, hoping
that the rest will equally be
liberated.
“Though everyone had thought
they were the Chibok girls, but we
should not lose sight that they are
as important as the Chibok girls.
“At the moment, we are looking
forward to the time the 293
women/girls would be handed
over to us so that we can begin the
process of rehabilitating and
reintegrating them into the
society.”
Also, the Borno State Governor,
Kashim Shettima, described the
military operation as “gratifying
regardless of whether or not the
rescued women formed part of the
over 200 schoolgirls abducted by
insurgents in 2014.”
Shettima, in a statement by his
Special Adviser on Media, Isa Gusau,
said, “I am so full of excitement and
gratitude to God. I commend our
gallant armed forces for this great
feat. For me, the lives, safety and
welfare of all citizens of Borno State
are of equal importance.
“However, this rescue is also very
dear to me. I am as pleased as much
as I would be when the Chibok
schoolgirls are rescued by the
special grace of God. I am very
optimistic, prayerful and supportive
of the military’s ongoing rescue
and counter-insurgency operations.
“We won’t give up on the Chibok
schoolgirls like I said two weeks
ago. No sane parent gives up on a
missing child.
“I have daughters and I know the
love of a parent to the girl child. For
now, it is better to allow the
military handle things, conduct
their investigations and ascertain
the identities of those rescued but
irrespective of the identities of the
girls, we are very happy that they
have been rescued whether they
are citizens of Borno or anywhere
else.
“We have abiding faith in God that
He will see us through these times
and we shall overcome the
temporary but traumatic moment
of grief. God will set Chibok girls
and all Nigerians free from fear and
the brutality of Boko Haram
insurgents and others in their
league.”
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Labour
Congress has appealed to the
abductors of the Chibok girls to
embrace reconciliation and release
them.
A Deputy President of the NLC, Mr.
Peters Adeyemi, said, “We use the
opportunity to join in the call for
the release of the Chibok girls; we
plead with those who abducted
them to release them in the spirit
of national rebirth and lay down
their arms to give way to a
reconciliatory dialogue for peace
and stability of the nation.”
