The anticipated return of the abducted Chibok girls suffered a major blow yesterday, with the federal government admitting glitches in the negotiations for a swap deal with Boko Haram, the terrorist group holding the girls. The group had set a condition to government to release some of its captured fighters in exchange for the abducted girls who were taken from their school dormitories in April 2014. Information and Culture Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who updated reporters yesterday, on the efforts to free the girls, said a deal was yet to be struck because the terrorist group kept making fresh demands from government that were neither bargained nor discussed. Mohammed, who said government remained committed to ensuring that the Chibok girls are safely released, added that establishing the genuity of the contact group was an Herculean task as “hostage taking and releasing is not like a foootball match involving Chelsea and Arsenal”.
