Nigeria won't negotiate release of kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls with Boko Haram -Senate

Senate President, David Mark

The Senate today ruled out the possibility of the Federal Government negotiating with Boko Haram on its latest proposal for the exchange of the abducted schoolgirls with their members in Nigerian prisons.

Senate President, David Mark who made the position of the senate known while speaking in Beijing, China said, "Nigeria will not negotiate with the terrorists under any circumstance because you don't negotiate with criminals which Boko Haram insurgents are.

"We are going to bring the girls back safe and sound for their parents without any negotiation with Boko Haram as every effort towards that, which cannot be disclosed in the public is being made to rescue them."

Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, had on Monday in a video showing the abducted girls for the first time since their abduction vowed that the girls will not be released unless the Federal Government releases members of the group being detained in various detention cells and prisons across the country.
