Mama Boko Haram, Female Lawyer Declared Wanted Appears At Defence Headquarters

Aisha Wakil, the Nigerian lawyer who was declared wanted by the Nigerian army, has reported at the Defence Headquarters, Abuja. The female lawyer was among the three people declared wanted by the Nigerian army for allegedly having links with Boko Haram. Speaking after the visit, she said: “They told me they will go and read and get back to me.” According to reports, the lawyer was relieved of her passport by a supervisor, who promised to return it ten minutes later.
Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, the military spokesman told the Street Journal that the woman had given herself up for interrogation, stating: “I have been reliably informed that she has reported at the Defence Headquarters and she has been directed to the Directorate of Military Intelligence.” It was further gathered that the two people declared wanted by the military have been contacted and will also make themselves available for questioning, as they denied ever being on the run even though they stated that the army was wrong to have declared them wanted.

Sources at the defence headquarters disclosed that the lawyer was not taken in for interrogation immediately as the front desk officers stated that they were not aware that she was declared wanted. Meanwhile, the Nigeria Defence Headquarters has issued a statement, barely hours after terrorist group Boko Haram released a video showing some of the Chibok girls, abducted from their school in April 2014. Boko Haram in the new video accused the military of killing some of the abducted girls in air strikes, a claim which the defence headquarters has disputed. According to the Defence Headquarters, it was examining the latest video from Boko Haram group purporting to show some of the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls.
