Boko Haram want leader for Chibok girls
President Muhammad Buhari has revealed what Boko Haram wants in exchange for the release of over 150 kidnapped school girls from Chibok.
The President revealed the insurgent’s demands while speaking with to Nigerians in Paris on Tuesday.
According to Buhari, the terrorist group wants to exchange the school girls for one of their leaders, who has been arrested.
“They wanted us to release one of their leaders who is a strategic person in developing and making IEDs that is causing a lot of havoc in the country by blowing people in churches, mosques, market places, motor parks and other places,” Buhari said.
“But it’s very important that if we are going to talk to any body, we have to know how much he is worth. Let them bring all the girls and then, we will be prepared to negotiate, I will allow them to come back to Nigeria or to be absolved in the community.”
“This has drawn a lot of sympathy though out the world, that is why this government is getting very hard in negotiating and getting the balance of those who are alive, ” he said.
The girls have been missing for well over a year, with many fearing that they’ve been converted into suicide bombers by the terrorists.
