Force out girls refusing to be freed, Chibok leaders tell FG

by Azeez Adeniyi

Chibok community leaders, under the aegis of Kibaku Area Development Association, have responded to claims by a negotiator, Zannah Mustapha that some abducted Chibok girls refused to be released.

The Chairman, Chibok Community in Abuja, Hosea Tsambido, told reporters in Abuja, on Tuesday, that the attitude of the Federal Government was suspicious.

Tsambido said the government could use such a claim as an excuse to give up on the rescue of the girls.


He added, “The most disheartening and annoying thing is the statement credited to one of the negotiators who said some of the girls refused to come out. We don’t want to hear that, even if the girls don’t want to come out, it is not for him to advertise.

“The girls must come out, whether they like it or not; they should force them out, just as they were forced in, they should be forced out. As their mind was changed by Boko Haram, when they return to us, we will change their mind back.”

He said residents have been denied access to the released girls while the state’s politicians have been allowed to see them.

He added, “We have still not been contacted; parents have still not been contacted. All I was told is that some people from Chibok, two district heads and the former and present chairmen of the local government area, came to Abuja and were allowed access to the girls. Some community leaders from Abuja, who went with them, were barred from entering.’’

The leader explained that he had matched the names of the freed girls with the list he had with him.

“I started comparing the list with the one that I have and I have seen a good number of the names that matched the list I have, so I believe that they are the Chibok girls,” Tsambido stated.
