Boko Haram gives condition to release Chibok schoolgirls, threatens Buhari


Infamous terrorist sect, Boko Haram, has listed conditions for the release of the remaining Chibok schoolgirls still in captivity.

Addressing President Muhammadu Buhari in a video, leader of the sect, Abubakar Shekau said the remaining Chibok schoolgirls would be released once the government frees Boko Haram members currently in detention.

Shekau made the demand in a video released 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari visited Borno State on a sympathy visit.

Last week, the sect attacked Auno near Maiduguri in Borno State, and left about 30 people dead.

Following the attack, President Buhari paid a sympathy visit to Maiduguri to condole with the governor and people of Borno State.

Shekau also warned Buhari not to return to Borno state, threating that because members of the group are on ground in the north-east, and are ready to attack him if he ever returns to the state

During the then administration of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2014, Boko Haram abducted about 276 girls from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state.

About 100 of the girls are still being held captive.
