The group’s last rally was a silence march was on Tuesday, August 30, in which everyone, including Ezekwesili, had their mouths sealed shut with duct tapes in description of the presidency’s seeming silence over the plight of the missing girls and their families.
Meanwhile, the Boko Haram insurgents are believed to be ready to dialogue with the Federal Government. This is according to Hajiya Aisha Wakil, who is believed to be close to the Boko Haram leadership.
“Since I came back, I have been on their neck. They have now agreed to come out and discuss with the government and bring back the girls.
“I am for the Chibok girls and all the captives. They are ready for peace. This is what they told me. “I think they might post some information on YouTube within 24 hours.”
