President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that one of the conditions given by Boko Haram for the release of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls was for the Nigerian government to release one of the sect members with expertise in making Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the President stated this yesterday in Paris while responding to questions from members of the Nigerian community in France. Buhari said;

“They wanted us to release one of their leaders who is a strategic person in developing and making Improvised IEDs that is causing a lot of havoc in the country by blowing people in Churches, Mosques, market places, motor parks and other places.”

He however disclosed his government would not accept such a demand.

Speaking on the Chibok girls, the president said;

“The issue of Chibok girls has occupied our minds and because of the international attention it drew and the sympathy throughout the country and the world. The government is (looking into possibility of) negotiating with some of the Boko Haram leadership,” he said.
