One of the abducted female students of Chibok School in Borno State, Ruth Nglari Apagu, has returned with two children fathered in captivity and has reunited with her family.

This was disclosed by Isa Gusau, Gov.Babagana Zulum’s spokesman. He said the governor received Ruth at the Government House on Saturday where she reunited with her parents.

He said Ruth was married to a Boko Haram fighter and returned with two children she had while in captivity.

The Chibok girl and her husband had surrendered to Nigerian troops on July 28 at a location in Bama, Borno state.

Following their surrender, security and government officials initiated contact with her parents to confirm her identity.

The governor said the return of Ruth should rekindle the hope of parents and other family members of Chibok girls still in captivity.

He said Ruth will undergo a rehabilitation and reintegration programme that will focus on her health, psychosocial wellbeing, and her future goals.

Zulum commiserated with families of those still in captivity and urged them to remain optimistic and prayerful.

He said: “I am extremely excited both as Borno’s governor and father of all sons and daughters of the state and also as a father to daughters.
