Some of the abducted Chibok girls of 2014 who recently returned and reunited with their families, have disclosed that they are willing to return to their captors.

The Inspector General Police, Usman Alkali-Baba made the revelation while speaking on the status of internal security at the weekly briefings coordinated by the Presidential Media Team in Abuja.

According to the IGP, some of the abducted girls, especially those who were forced into marriage and had children for their captors said they only returned to see their families.

He said, “The issue of Chibok girls, you know they are coming out one after another and gradually. Sometimes they come out and say yes, we have come to see our parents and we want to go back.”

The Point recalls that over 270 Chibok girls were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists Chibok town, Borno State in 2014, and over 100 have since been freed or managed to escape.

That same month, Falmata Lawal and her child were rescued by troops of the Nigerian Army.
