“I believe that some of them will never return. We will still be hearing about them many years from now.” These were the words of the former Nigeria’s President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
The former President who answered questions on the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, monitored in Abuja today added: “Some (of the abducted girls of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state) will give birth, but if they (Boko Haram members) cannot take care of them in the forest, they may be released.”
Obasanjo regretted that since he made move to reach out to Boko Haram leadership on the possible release of the girls, the Federal Government had yet to give him the go ahead, expressing the fears that the more than 200 abducted girls might never return again.
He noted that the girls might have been divided into groups and not likely to be at the same location. [myad]
