I will free Dapchi schoolgirls, vows Aisha Wakil called Mama Boko Haram


A Maiduguri-based lawyer, Aisha Wakil, has vowed to do everything within her powers to help the over 100 pupils abducted last week in Dapchi by the dreaded sect, Boko Haram regain their freedom.
Wakil, who reportedly has links with the terrorist group, also said she wouldn’t mind losing her life in the process.
In a chat with PRNigeria on Tuesday, Wakil, who is fondly referred to as ‘Mama Boko Haram’, claimed the girls were whisked away by the ‘Barnawi’ faction of the insurgent group,
Wakil, who is also a right activist, said:“Wallahi I will go after them, even if it will take my life to save these girls. They call me Mummy, but they don’t listen to me. I keep on talking to them, begging them to lay down their arms and embrace peace but they will say ‘Insha-Allah mummy we are going to stop.’ Sometimes they will say they are scared they are going to be killed but I will tell them nobody is going to kill you.”
Aisha Wakil, was a former member of the Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the northern region of Nigeria under the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan.
She had, in previous efforts, brought military officers and Boko Haram Commanders together during negotiations.
