Sad! Remaining Chibok girls are unwilling to return home. See reasons.

We are comfortable with our current location - Chibok girls. 


Hmm... Do you Remember April 2014, some 276 school girls were kidnapped from their school in Chibok, northeast of Nigeria? 

Now, According to the Chairman of Chibok Development  Association (Pogu Bitrus), the unwilling girls may have been radicalised by Boko Haram, or are ashamed to return home because they were forced to marry extremists and have babies. This is sad.. 

He then advised that the 21 Chibok girls freed last week in the first negotiation release between Nigeria’s government and Boko Haram should be educated abroad, adding that they may likely face stigmatization in Nigeria.
The community leader said the girls told their parents that they were separated into two groups earlier on in their captivity and given the choice of joining the extremists and embracing Islam, or becoming their slaves.
Bitrus said the girls were used as domestic workers and porters but were not sexually abused. He said the group contains the 21 who were released last week and the 83 who the government said it was negotiating their freedom.
The freed girls and their parents were reunited on Sunday and are expected to meet with Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday or Wednesday, Bitrus said.
