President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the federal government will negotiate with terrorist group, Boko Haram for the release of the abducted Chibok girls. The president also said that the negotiations will commence immediately verified sect members are identified. The President said this while fielding questions from journalists in France. He also expressed worry over the continuous stay of the school girls with the deadly sect. According to the president, the federal government had rejected a deal proposed by the sect. He said the sect had demanded the release of one of its members, alleged to be an Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs) maker. The demand was turned down.
Recall that the abduction of the school girls had caused massive protests worldwide. The girls are believed to have been split in groups and sent to border countries, Chad and Cameroon.
