The Nigerian army yesterday said Aisha Wakil, turned herself in at the army headquarters in Abuja.
The spokesman of the Nigerian Army, Colonel Sani Usman, told Daily Trust that she made herself available to investigators at the Army Headquarters.

Asked if she was detained, he said: “We did not say we were arresting people, they were invited to shed more light because from all indications they know more than they acknowledge publicly. Our own concern is to make sure we rescue all persons being held by the Boko Haram group including the Chibok girls so anybody with tangible information should come forward.”

Aisha Wakil had before her arrival in Abuja from Maiduguri yesterday issued a statement
saying the Nigerian Army was clearly out for mischief by declaring her wanted.
“I know the Boko Haram boys. I had been in front fighting for peace long before the Chibok girls were kidnapped. Nigerian security knows me too well, I’m not shady. Why declaring me wanted?

“I have had meetings with the Chief of Army staff and his people. I told them the way forward, to allow me come with some commanders of Boko Haram and discuss with them, present the release of CBGs (Chibok girls) but they chose to do things their own way only and never gave considerations to any of my suggestions.

“I want to inform the Nigerian people of my innocence and make them realise that I am in constant relation with the security personnel and they know where to find me but I wonder why I had to be declared wanted on national news, even mentioning my husband’s name alongside.
“This has put my immediate and extended family under a lot of pressure and I do not deserve this from the Nigerian government,” she said.

I’m a good citizen – Bolori
On his part, Bolori, who kept updating his interaction with the military on his Facebook page throughout yesterday, said he would remain a good citizen because he took himself to the 7 Division Nigerian Army, Maimalari Barracks, on Sunday but was asked to go back home and return yesterday.

He said he went back at about 10am, signed the visitors’ register, waited for over one hour at the gate and thereafter asked to drive in.
“The army is now treating me friendly and peacefully, as a nice colonel by the name ‘Ahmed’ (a military police), just took me to his office to drink tea. May God help us,” he said.
