The Chibok girls were kidnapped in their boarding school in Chibok, in the restive Borno state, on 14 April 2014. Barrister Aisha Wakil, otherwise known as Mama Boko Haram, has said that the insurgents are ready to begin negotiations with the Nigerian government to secure the release of the Chibok girls. 
 Adesina Wakil told IBTimes UK that Boko Haram terrorists have put forward a request that she represents them in negotiations with the government to secure the release of the girls. “There are three Boko Haram factions at the moment and all of them have requested to be represented by Barrister Aisha,” he said. He added the first thing that will be negotiated is the release of the Chibok girls,” Prince Lawal Shoyode, a spokesperson for Barrister Aisha Wakil said. The request by the sect for negotiations came days after President Muhammadu Buhari said the UN should intervene and negotiate with the insurgents. Shortly after Buhari’s speech, an audio allegedly made by a Boko Haram member in Hausa emerged, requesting that Aisha Alkali Wakil should represent the group during negotiations with the government. On her part, Wakil said she was willing to negotiate with the government. “I want total surrender of the boys [Boko haram]. I want them rehabilitated counseled, properly directed, and forgiveness from people. Then we move on,” she said.
 “You know the release of Chibok girls and other captives are paramount. You also know that some of them are married with kids, sad but manageable. Let them come out and have a new life, homes. Once the boys will keep their stand on peace, dislodge all negative forces, we will be swimming in peace and joy.” Recall that earlier in September, President Buhari said the government was willing to free some detained Boko Haram militants in exchange for the girls. Buhari however, said the governments efforts at negotiating with the insurgents failed because it became difficult to identify credible leaders of the sect. The Chibok girls were kidnapped in their boarding school in Chibok, in the restive Borno state, on 14 April 2014. Some of the girls managed to escape and one was rescued in the Sambisa forest earlier this year, but at least 218 are still missing.
