President Buhari has revealed that some fraudsters are demanding money from the Federal Government for the release of the Chibok Girls.

The Boko Haram sect abducted over 200 girls from Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno state in April, 2014.

According to the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, “President Muhammadu Buhari said Friday in Abuja that while the rescue and safe return of the remaining Chibok girls remains a top priority of his administration, he will not fall for the antics of fraudsters who have been asking the Federal Government for money to negotiate the release of the girls.”

Buhari also said he wants the girls to be rescued, but he was not going to fall for the dubious plan.

Adesina also said the Buhari-led administration will verify the identity of anyone who wishes to broker a deal for the release of the Chibok girls.

Buhari said this while hosting Bishops from the Anglican communion in Nigeria.

He also assured the clergymen that his government will ensure the completion of the Ogoni clean-up project.

Femi Adesina, in January 2016, alleged that fake Boko Haram members duped the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

He said the fake sect members were paid millions of dollars to secure the release of the Chibok girls.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said on different occasions that his government would not rule out the possibility of negotiating with Boko Haram, if it would indeed secure the release of the abducted Chibok girls.
