Boko Haram terrorists are reportedly offering to free the abducted Chibok girls in exchange for the release of some of the sect’s members who are being detained by the Nigerian government.
Terrorists reportedly offering to exchange Chibok girls for detained colleagues
This was disclosed to The Associated Press by a human rights activist, who chose to remain anonymous.
According to AP, a man named Fred Eno, who has been negotiating with Boko Haram for more than a year, stated that another “another window of opportunity opened" in the last few days.
Eno said further that the 5-week-old administration of President Muhammadu Buhari offers "a clean slate" to bring the militants back to negotiations that had become poisoned by the different security agencies and their advice to Jonathan.
Nigeria’s Presidency had earlier said through Presidential aide, Femi Adesina, that it would not be averse to negotiating with the terrorists but it would do so from a position of strength.
