Boko Haram can never set conditions for govt, says Minister


Following the video, released by Boko Haram leader saying that the girls will be freed only if imprisoned militants are released, Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro has described the demand as ‘unreasonable.’

Moro said terrorists can not give government conditions on the abducted.

Moro vowed that government will deployed more arsenals to deal with Boko Haram and rescue the Chibok girls.

Boko Haram abducted more than 200 girls and threatened to sell them.

Islamist militants Boko Haram have released a video apparently showing about 130 girls kidnapped from a school in northern Nigeria on 14 April.

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said the children would be held until all imprisoned militants had been freed.

The Boko Haram leader later says they have become “sisters of the militants” following their conversion. Next he goes on to say he may consider swapping the girls for imprisoned militants – but only those who have not converted.

Moro’s words: “It is unfortunate that Boko Haram is given government conditions to release the girls they abducted. This deal can never work. And government will not yield to this. No matter the pressure no government will bowl to this.

“Government is doing everything possible to rescue these girls and we are deploying all we have to record success. No terrorist group can hold government to ransom.”
