Former President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo has suggested that some of the over 200 teenagers abducted by suspected men of the Boko Haram sect are pregnant and might (not) be released soon. Obasanjo while affirming in an interview on the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation that he has opened a communication link with the infamous sect, revealed that some of the girls are pregnant and will find it hard to cater for their babies in Sambisa forest. The former commander-in-chief who also expressed fear that the girls might never come back, said on Thursday that he could reach out to the violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram, over the abduction of the Chibok girls, but regretted that the Federal Government was yet to give him the go ahead. He said the terror group might release some of the girls that might be pregnant and finding it difficult to cater for the babies in the forest. He said, “I believe that some of them will never return. We will still be hearing about them many years from now. Some will give birth, but if they cannot take care of them in the forest, they may be released.” He further noted that the girls might have been divided into groups and are not likely to be at the same location.
