Abuja - The Nigerian Army has handed one of the three persons it declared wanted, Aisha Wakil, a lawyer, to the Department of State Security (DSS) after interrogation at a military facility for about four hours, Vanguard reports.
The self proclaimed friend of the Boko Haram terrorist group who said she had access to its members and was willing to facilitate a negotiation with the group with regards to the fate of the abducted Chibok girls, wrote a statement after the interrogation before she was transferred to DSS on Wednesday.
Recall that AishaWakil was declared wanted along with a Dubai-based Nigerian journalist, Ahmad Salkida and Ahmed Bolori over claims that they were privy to videos being released by Boko Haram and had knowledge of whereabouts of missing Chibok girls.
It was not clear why Wakil who voluntarily submitted herself to the Army authorities was handed over to the DSS but a source hinted that it was for further investigation as she could prove useful in getting to the root of the Chibok girls debacle.
News24 had reported that Aisha Alkali Wakil has accused the Army of “mischief.”
Wakil claimed she had previously approached the military to help secure the freedom of the girls but her offers were spurned.
In a statement issued to journalists on Monday, she agreed to knowing the terrorists but having been "in front fighting for peace" long before Chibok girls were kidnapped.
“Nigerian security knows me too well, I'm not shady. Why declaring me wanted?” she asked.
She disclosed she had meetings with Chief of Army staff but her suggestion on how to ensure the release of the girls were not considered.
