"Like all Nigerians and many others around the world, I am delighted that Amina Ali is free, but it is tinged with deep sorrow with what she had to go through," President Buhari said.

"She is receiving high-level medical attention and the best doctors in the state are attending to her. The governor ordered for her release from the military as he wanted to make sure she and her baby daughter received urgent medical and psychological attention," he said.

Amina was said to have been discovered by Nigerian vigilantes fighting the terror group Boko Haram which abducted the girls two years ago. She was found wandering on the edge of the Sambisa Forest with her baby and a man thought to be a fighter for the group. Officials separated the 19-year-old from the man and that man is currently in military detention being interrogated.
