JUST IN: Boko Haram Gives Condition For Chibok Girls’ Release
Abubakar Shekau, leader of the Boko Haram sect, has warned president Muhammadu Buhari not to visit Borno again or else they will attack him.
The admonition is coming barely 24hrs after the president visitedd Maiduguri, Borno state capial.
In a video released on Thursday, the Boko Haram leader also gave conditions under which the remaining chibok in the terrorists’ den would be set free.
More than 100 of the 276 girls abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state, in 2014, are yet to regain their freedom.
24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari visited Borno, Shekau said the schoolgirls would be set free if the federal government let go of the sect members currently in detention.
He also asked Buhari not to return to Borno, saying the sect is fully on ground in the north-east.
Boko Haram had launched an attack hours after Buhari paid a condolence visit to the state over the killing of 30 persons in Auno, a community near Maiduguri, on Sunday.
“Buhari came to Maiduguri pretending to be a good man. He shouldn’t try it again,” Shekau said in Hausa
