Mrs. Wakil, in an exclusive interview with Pulse News, said the Chibok girls are being treated well by the Boko Haram sect in Sambisa forest.

According to her, the protests that followed the abduction of the girls, made the terrorists refuse to release them.

Wakil said "It did not take long, then the noise started 'Chibok girls, Chibok girls.' So they called me to ask if Chibok girls have become gold and diamond. And they decided that they won’t release anyone. The protest was so much!

"They told me ‘Mama, we saw Obama’s wife on television with #BringBackOurGirls placard.’ When the noise became too loud, they became bold and said they would not release them. They began to call the girls ‘Our golden Chibok girls.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has said undefinedthe release of Chibok girls with representatives of Boko Haram.
