Indications have emerged that more than 100 of the Chibok girls currently being held by Boko haram terrorists are unwilling to leave their captors and return to their homes.

Pogu Bitrus, chairman of the Chibok Development Association, said that the girls were ashamed to return home because they were forced to marry extremists and have their babies, Daily Mail reports.

According to Bitrus, the freed girls told their parents that their captors divided them into two groups shortly after their abduction.


They said Boko Haram commanders gave them two options; to be conscripted as insurgents and embrace Islam, or become their slaves.

Bitrus said the latter group of girls were used as domestic workers but were not sexually abused.

He also spoke on the importance of foreign education for the 21 freed girls in order to spare them from victimization in their respective communities.

Many of those who escaped from Boko Haram two years ago, he said, were taunted as “Boko Haram wives” by people in Chibok.

“We would prefer that they are taken away from the community and this country because the stigmatization is going to affect them for the rest of their lives. Even someone believed to have been abused by Boko Haram would be seen in a bad light”, said Bitrus.

The 21 girls were released after negotiations between the government — brokered by the Swiss government — and the Boko Haram sect.
