ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A Nigerian schoolgirl rescued after over two years of captivity with Boko Haram militants was surrounded by reporters on Thursday as she arrived for a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, amid hopes she can shed light on the fate of 218 other abducted Chibok girls. Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki, who was flown in from the northeast regional capital Maiduguri two days after her rescue, wore a veil and multi-coloured dress as security guards escorted her into Buhari's office in the Nigerian capital Abuja. She was accompanied by her mother, Binta, and Nigeria's Minister of Defence and National Security Adviser. Soldiers working with a civilian vigilante group found Amina on Tuesday near Damboa, south of Maiduguri. Officials confirmed she was one of 219 girls abducted from the government school in Chibok in April 2014. She was found with her four-month-old baby while a "suspected Boko Haram terrorist" called Mohammed Hayatu, who said he was Amina's husband, was also detained, the army said.
