I Am In Contact With Boko Haram to Free The Girls - Obasanjo
One man who is not only troubled about the fate
of the over 200 girls kidnapped in Chibok by
Boko Haram sect but also doing all in his power
to ensure that the girls return home safe is
President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The ex-President said on Thursday that he could
reach out to the schoolgirls abducted in the
insurgents camp, but he regretted that the
Goodluck Jonathan Government had yet to give him the green light to act. In the words of Obasanjo:
"I have ways of reaching them(Boko Haram) but
I have not been given the go ahead. "I believe
that some of them will never return. We will still
be hearing about them many years from now,
some will give birth to children of the Boko
Haram members, but if they cannot take care of
them in the forest, they may release them."
In an interview on Hausa Service of British
Broadcasting Corporation monitored in Kaduna,
he expressed worry that the girls might have
been separated and kept in different locations to
checkmate rescue plans. Since the girls were
kidnapped from their hostel in April, 2014,
Obasanjo has been making frantic efforts to get
them out and reunite them with their family.
He held a meeting on the matter in his home
recently and has thus go out of his way to
convince the government to do the needful for
the sake of the girls.
