Why I dumped Christianity for Islam - Boko Haram mediator opens up [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

In an exclusive interview with Pulse, Barrister Wakil opens up on why she converted from Christianity to Islam.

Human rights activist, Aisha Wakil, popularly called Mama Boko Haram had claimed that the terrorists contacted her to confirm the Dapchi girls are in their possession

Barrister Wakil was nicknamed "" by locals who due to closeness with the members of the Boko Haram sect before they became terrorists.

Few weeks after her release, news broke that she is from the eastern part of Nigeria and was formerly a Christian.

Confirming the report, Barrister Wakil in a exclusive interview with Pulse in Maiduguri, said she became a Muslim due to the behaviour of her husband who she described as a very wonderful man.

"What attracted me to embrace Islam is what attracts a fly to perch on a particular place. That is the behavior – my husband. He is a very wonderful man and so I had to follow him and abide by whatever he wants," she said.

"The belief in the South is that wherever you marry is your home and a woman does not have a religion until she settles somewhere. So, if your husband is a pagan, Muslim or Christian, you have to join him.

"The most important thing is that you are going there to be a good ambassador who will represent your family and the women folk," she added.

Barrister Wakil also expressed the willingness of the Boko Haram sect to release the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.
