Ezekwesili threatens to ‘call out’ media referring to rescued Chibok girl’s abductor as her husband

Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili

A former Minister of Education and #BringBackOurGirls activist, Obiageli Ezekwesili, has warned the media to stop referring to the ‘predator’ that violated abducted Chibok girl, Amina Ali, as her ‘Boko Haram husband’.

The former minister disclosed this in a post on her Twitter handle where she rhetorically asked if the media did not know that ‘Amina Ali’s parents’ did not give her out for marriage’.

Her tweets: “From now I shall call out any media house that says or writes ‘her Boko Haram husband’ for that ‘predator’ that violated Amina Ali. Get ready.

“Does the media not know that #AminaAli’s parents did not give her out for marriage? She’s a victim of abduction and sexual violence.”

The rescued girl and her parents met President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja on Thursday.

Details of the meeting is sketchy at this time.
