FG Reacts To Latest Chibok Girls Video, Says Its In Touch With Boko Haram
The federal government has reacted to the latest video released by the Boko Haram sect, saying the government is in touch with the group for talks on the release of the Chibok schoolgirls.
Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, said this in a statement issued by Segun Adeyemi, his media aide.
He said the government was doing everything possible to secure the release of the girls and to put an end to the horrible saga of their abduction.
”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.
