Federal Government Rejects Boko Haram’s Proposal To Exchange Abducted Girls For Their Imprisoned MembersTuesday, May 13, 2014
The Federal Government yesterday said it would not negotiate with Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau following the demands he made in a video he released showing the kidnapped girls.
In an interview with AFP, Interior Minister, Abba Moro, said the issue in question is not about Boko Haram giving conditions.
Also speaking at a press conference of security heads and the other stakeholders following the release of the video, the DG of the National Orientation Agency, Mike Omeri, said the Federal Government would explore all other options to rescue the girls but would not negotiate with terrorists
"All options are on the table and open, we are interacting with the military and intelligent experts who are already on surveillance in the North Eastern part of the country. We will adopt all available options to get the girls out, but we will not negotiate with the sect"
