The Federal Government has said it would not negotiate with terrorist, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau following the demands he made in a video he released showing the kidnapped girls.
In an interview with AFP, the Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, said the issue in question is not about Boko Haram giving conditions.
Also speaking at a press conference of security heads and other stakeholders following the release of the video, the Director General of the National Orientation Agency, Mike Omeri, said the Federal Government would explore all other options to rescue the girls but would not negotiate with Boko Haram.
“All options are on the table and open, we are interacting with the military and intelligent experts who are already on surveillance in the North Eastern part of the country. We will adopt all available options to get the girls out, but we will not negotiate with the sect”
