  • President Buhari Speaks on Chibok Girls

Groups, parents of the chibok girls are using this occasion to call for the immediate release of the girls, also not forgetting the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu who is also still held in captivity by the Boko Haram.

He said: "Following the numerous press enquiries on the information contained in the series of tweets by Mr Ahmed Salkida, we wish to reiterate that the information is not known to the officials of this administration either from the captors of the Chibok girls or the global intercessors who are working with us".

UNICEF Representative in Nigeria Mohamed Malick Fall further informed that 20000 people have been killed while 20 lakh have been displaced due to attack by Boko Haram.

"Unfortunately, the negotiations between the government and Boko Haram suffered some unexpected setbacks, owing mainly to a lack of agreement among their abductors, whose internal differences have led to a divergence of voices regarding the outcome of the talks".

"We know that this is not the news parents want to hear after four years of waiting, but we want to be as honest as possible with you".

Parents of the missing Chibok schoolgirls on Saturday marked the fourth anniversary of their daughters' kidnapping by Boko Haram, renewing calls for their release and thousands of others seized in the bloody conflict in northeast Nigeria.

What we know about the USA airstrikes on Syria
Around 103 missiles were fired at Syria with the aim of degrading Syria's chemical weapons capability without killing civilians. He reaffirmed Russia's view that a purported chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma that prompted the strike was a fake.

Buhari said the return of so many students from Dapchi and Chibok "should give confidence that all hope is not lost" and showed the government was "doing its very best". "They are also advised not to lose faith in this government's ability to fulfil its promise that the girls will not be abandoned or forgotten".

But speaking to The Cable hours later, John Agim, defence spokesman, said it is not the first time that the girls were said to have been killed or married off. There was a credible window, but zero will to rescue the girls.

The issue of child abduction drew renewed attention when 276 girls were taken from a school in the town of Chibok in 2014.

"We thank Allah for those that were released; we want the remaining girls to be released too, we pray that Allah will protect them and protect our nation".

"Four out of five processes that I was involved in, we came close to a swap deal, but government in most instances did not provide the platform I presented with the required expertise".

The former military ruler has repeatedly claimed Boko Haram was virtually defeated but while there have been clear army gains, security threats remain.
