President Buhari Holds Talks With Boko Haram To Free More Chibok Girls


The Presidency is currently holding talks with members of the deadly Boko Haram group for the release of more Chibok girls

Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina disclosed this on Monday shortly after delivering lectures at the Nigerian Army School of Public Relations and Information (NASPRI) annual media workshop for Defence Correspondents and Commanding Officers.

Adesina according to Sun said with talks still ongoing, many more girls would be recovered.

He denied reports that federal government knows sponsors of Boko Haram.

He stated that if government knows the sponsors and it is sure that they are sponsors, they would not be spared.
