Among the camp’s inhabitants, special attention was given to the 14 rescued Chibok girls and their children, who have been undergoing rehabilitation within the camp’s confines. Accompanying the Minister were esteemed officials, including the Borno State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajia Zuwaira Gambo, and the Acting Hon.
