Aisha Wakil, popularly known as Mama Boko Haram, given her intermediary role in the release of some of the Chibok girls that were kidnapped some years ago has again come out in defence of the group (Boko Haram) saying the group apart from willing to surrender are non-violent.
The popular mediator, while speaking to reporters on Saturday said members of Musab al-Barnawi faction of Boko Haram are well known to her and that they cannot harm the kidnapped students.
“I was shocked, like every other Nigerian, as same history has repeated itself like Chibok girls. I enquired and I was told that it was Habib and co who took the girls.
“This is not Habib’s habit, son of Mohammed Yusuf. I know he is with Maman Nur one of the peaceful groups of Jamatul Ali’s Sunna, Liddawati Wul Jihadi. Nur, Habib and group are people with less violence.
“Why these Dapchi little girls were taken by them left me with shock. I know, believe and trust that they won’t hurt them or hold them long. This group I can beat my chest and tell the world that it needs peace and it wants to stop.
“These kids are not heartless people. May Almighty Allah touch the hearts of these dear sons so that they could stop. The whole world is watching. What are they afraid of? Who will touch a surrendered fighter? Do they think the world and I would not be there for them?
“Dear sons, my knees are on the ground, my hands up to Allah, begging all of you to stop. Try me your mum, just come out with the girls, please don’t do havoc again. From the deep of my heart, I beg with motherly love and tears.
She said the country must henceforth stop the blame game and pray against a re-occurrence of.
