Barrister Aisha Alkali Wakil, aka Mama Boko Haram on Tuesday begged the Abu Musab Al-Barnawi-led faction of Boko Haram to release the 110 girls abducted from the Government Girls’ Science Technical College, Dapchi.
The appeal of the former member of Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North to the faction followed suggestion that it was behind the schoolgirls’ abduction.
According to PRNigeria, the activist who cried profoundly said: “This thing that is happening, is really breaking my heart. These children don’t even know what they are doing. Some of them were not even born at the time this thing started.
“Wallahi I will go after them, even if it will take my life to save these girls. They call me Mummy, but they don’t listen to me.
“I keep on talking to them, begging them to lay down their arms and embrace peace but they will say ‘Insha-Allah mummy we are going to stop.’ Sometimes they will say they are scared they are going to be killed but I will tell them nobody is going to kill you.”
“I heard you are now being called ‘Abu Mussad Al-Barnawi’ but I know you as Habib and I am begging you to stop the killing and abduction.
“I have sent many messages to you. I don’t know if you are getting these messages or you just chose to continue to hurt your mother and make her cry.
“Dear Habib, Nuru and others, I was told you may be the ones responsible for the kidnap of these girls. Where ever you may be if you are listening to me, I beg you in the name of Allah to release the girls back to their families.
“What type of children will continue letting their mother to continue crying. Dear Habib, I pray Allah touches your heart and that of your colleagues to stop what you are doing. “
