Nigeria has been grappling for years without success with the insurgents, who seek to impose sharia law in the country's northeast.
But Dumoma Mpur, chairman of the parent-teachers association of the school in Chibok where the girls were kidnapped, told Reuters news service that one mother recognized her child.
"You that seized and detained my brethren for five years, you arrested and kept a woman without getting married for four, five years. You seized and hold our children. You did all this to us and today, because we did what God already told us to do, you are busy making noise, 'Shekau has kidnapped this and that, he said he would sell.' Yes, I will sell.
"I will sell. Those of them that have not accepted Islam, they are now gathered in numbers. They are staying with us. We will never release them until our brethren are released."
