Must read

One of the Chibok school girls released by Boko Haram on Saturday, came back with one of her legs amputated.

The unnamed girl was among the 82 girls taken from Banki, a town on the border with Cameroon, to Abuja.

In Abuja, they were examined at a Department of State Services (DSS) clinic.

“Two [of the girls] have injuries,” the chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, said.

“One has hand injury, the other has a leg injury.”

Kyari insisted that the amputation had nothing to do with the “rescue” operation, which he said was carried out ”professionally, without any hitch”.

The director of medicals, DSS Clinic, Anne Okoroafor, assured that the girls would be given adequate medical care.
