We Are In Talks With Boko Haram -FG

The Federal Government has said it has not relented efforts in ensuring the release of the abducted Chibok girls, while putting and end to the saga of their abduction.

The government said this in a statement released by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Muhammed, stating that it has been in talks with a section of Boko Haram on possible return of peace to the north-east zone of the federation.

The statement by the government is sequel to a new video posted on You Tube by a yet to be identified faction of Boko Haram showing some of the abducted Chibok girls.

The shocking video ended with a footage of what the militants claimed was an aerial attack by the Nigerian military that led to the death of some of the abducted girls.

The statement read, ”We are on top of the situation. But we are being extremely careful because the situation has been compounded by the split in the leadership of Boko Haram. We are also being guided by the need to ensure the safety of the girls.

”Since this is not the first time we have been contacted over the issue, we want to be doubly sure that those we are in touch with are who they claim to be,” he said.

Alhaji Mohammed expressed the hope that the latest development will signal the beginning of the end of the nightmare to which the girls, their families and indeed all Nigerians have been subjected since the unfortunate abduction.
