Chibok girls: Lai says FG in touch with Boko Haram to release them

The Federal Government Sunday said they are in touch with Boko Haram for the release of the remaining Chibok girls abducted over some two years ago, reports ITRealms.

The government in response to the latest video of some of the girls, by Boko Haram, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said in a press statement made available to ITRealms by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Segun Adeyemi in Abuja, that the government is in touch with those purportedly behind the video, and is doing everything possible to secure the release of the Chibok girls and 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,” Alhaji Mohammed said.

Stressing, ''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.

Mohammed further 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.
