Pogu Bitrus, chairman of the Chibok Development Association, said more than 100 of the Chibok girls currently being held by Boko haram terrorists are unwilling to leave their captors.

According to DAILY MAIL UK, Bitrus said, they were ashamed to return home because they were forced to marry extremists and have their babies.

Mr Bitrus, ”We would prefer that they are taken away from the community and this country because the stigmatisation 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.”

Mausi Segun, a researcher in Nigeria for Human Rights Watch, the international campaign organisation, told GUARDIAN UK, “Any sign that there has been sexual contact with any man, and these men are Boko Haram, will cause a backlash. The likelihood they will return home is slim”.
