The Chibok Community in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja has kicked against referring an alleged Boko Haram member, Mohammad Hayyatu as the husband of the just found one of the 219 abducted Chibok Secondary School girls, Amina Ali Nkeki.
Speaking in Abuja at the Unity Fountain venue of the daily sit out of BringBackOurGirls (BBOG movement Chairman of Chibok community, Tsambido Hosea Abana said the community frowned at referring Hayyatu as their daughter’s husband, rather, they described him as Boko Haram sexual exploiter.
Abana noted that the arrival of Amina and useful information she has provided about her other classmates would help security agencies to trace where other girls are with a view to rescuing them.
He said the Chibok community welcomes Amina and her baby wholeheartedly and awaits others still in captivity.
” Our stand on Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki of Mbalala Village Unit of Chibok Local Government, one of our abducted girls from GSS Chibok and a claimed Boko Haram sexual exploiter Mohammad Hayyatu.
We the Chibok Community wish to state clearly to the Government and General Public that we condemned calling Mohammad Hayyatu as Boko Haram husband of our daughter rather he should be referred to as Boko Haram sexual exploiter” he said
He stressed that the Chibok community would not not support discussion with the Government or any agency of government in company of Mohammad Hayyatu.
Abana however said the community wants the federal government to set up a team of expert investigators to investigate Mohammad Hayyatu’s involvement in Boko Haram and his sexual exploitation of Amina in order to allow the law to take its course.
He said all reports and findings of investigation should be made public even as he suggested that all stakeholders (Parents, Chibok Community (KADA), BBOG) should be involved in any process of discussing anything relating to Amina and her colleagues for purpose of transparency and confidence building.
Speaking also at the sit out former Minister of Education Dr. Ngozi Okonjo – Iweala said that the information provided by Amina has given the Federal Government the needed credible intelligence to locate and rescue the remaining girls
She argued that government no longer has moral right not to swing into action ensure safe resume of the abducted girls.
