Nine-eight of the 113 Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram in Apirl 2014 are allegedly dead.
The claim was made by Ahmad Salkida, a journalist that is popularly called Boko Haram Journalist on account of his access to the terrorist group, and was once declared wanted by the military alongside Barrister Aisha Wakil, aka Mama Boko Haram and invited for interrogation pertaining to the group’s vile activities.
In a series of tweets, Ahmad claimed only fifteen of the Chibok girls in captivity were alive and married to members of the dread group.
He went on to cast doubt on alleged efforts being made by the federal government to rescue the girls.
The tweets: “Today, my painstaking investigations on the #Chibokschoolgirls revealed that just a handful of the 113 #ChibokGirls are alive.
“Many of the girls have died as a result of crossfires and bombardments of the security forces that no doubt were intent on rescuing them. I regret to state here that only 15 out of the 113 #Chibokgirls are alive today, based on my investigations in the last three months
“What is the status of the remaining 15 girls as far as negotiations are concerned? My investigations also revealed that they are no longer under the control of #AbubakarShekau. According to sources, they are now ‘married’ and only their ‘husbands’ can decide their fates.
“If they are divorced or the men are killed, that is when Shekau’s decision takes precedence, and in this instance, since the girls have been indoctrinated, their leader has no right to negotiate for their release, no matter the ransom offered, reliable multiple sources said.
“The way out for these girls, is a military rescue or negotiate with individual captors to release their ‘wives’ in return for some kind of deal, but this will mean death to these fighters because the terror group now sees the girls as part of their own and must be protected.”
However, the Defence Headquarters on Sunday refuted Salkida’s claim, urging Nigerians to disregard it.
