Abandoned Chibok Girl Moved To Undisclosed Location In Abuja For Further Treatment

Chibok-girlsIndications emerged weekend that the Federal Government has moved the Chibok girl, Susan Ishaya, abandoned by Boko Haram in Adamawa, to Abuja for further treatment.

Susan was moved from the Police hospital, Yola, on Saturday to an undisclosed location where she is now receiving treatment in Abuja.

Her identity is yet to be confirmed or her parents identified since the parents who travelled to Yola to meet with her along with the Vice Principal of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, were unable to see her because she was flown out without their knowledge.

The spokesman for members of Chibok community resident in Abuja under the aegis of Kibaku Area Development Association (KADA), Dr. Manasseh Allen, stated this Saturday in Abuja, during the daily sit-out of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign group.

Allen said that it will be important to Susan’s recovery if she is united with her parents and not kept away from them.

“She has been moved by security agencies to Abuja from Yola since yesterday, her location has not been disclosed to us, they are working on her medical condition first before they can acquire any information from her.

“They have found out that she is still incoherent, she keeps repeating herself and at times she keeps repeating statements which means that we cannot depend on her words for now.  But our leaders are in touch with the authorities and government.  As I speak to you right now there are people on standby waiting on the military authorities so that they can have access to Susan and ensure that proper medical attention is given to her before before we can go on with whatever can come after.

“No single parent has made any contact with her, as I’m speaking to you, no one can say categorically that she is from Chibok because no one is yet to meet her.

“My point of concern is that in every rehabilitation family is essential even to the healing process medically, so it is essential that Susan is reunited with her family as soon as possible so that the process of her psychological and psychosocial healing is complete”, he said.
