THE missing school girls who were allegedly abducted by Boko Haram terrorists from their school on February 19, in Dapchi of Yobe State are in safe hands.
This was the submission of a human rights activist, Mrs. Aisha Wakil, who is also fondly called Mama Boko Haram, in a video published by News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Wakil was a member of the Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges Committee in the northern region, set up during the President Goodluck Jonathan era.
She is said to have communication links with the terrorist as she is being respected by some leaders of the sect.
Wakil had, at various times, participated and played key roles in negotiations between the military authorities and Boko Haram insurgents’ commanders, which facilitated the release of numerous abductees from the terrorists’ captivity.
She submitted that a faction of the terrorist group had contacted her, confirming to her that they have the missing schoolgirls in their custody.
In the interview published by the News Agency, Wakil that the girls were safe, healthy and in good condition.
“They are even the ones that called me, and said ‘Mama, we heard what you have said;’ and told me that they are with the girls and they are going to release them.
“I begged of them and said ‘please, let this not be another 1,000-plus days of Chibok girls,’ and they laughed and said no.
“I asked them whether I could come and stay with them (girls) for two days, but they did not say anything.
“I can assure Nigerians that so far they are with my son Habib and his friends; Habib is a nice guy, he is very nice boy. He will not harm them, he will not touch them, and he will not kill them.
“He is going to listen to us, and so far, he has indicated interest that he loves peace. And I love them for that and believe what they said on this.
“They will definitely give us the girls. All I am begging Nigerians is to calm down, be prayerful, everything will be over by God’s grace.”
