FG reportedly paid 2million Euros for the release of 82 Chibok school girls- BBC report claims

In a new report, BBC is alleging that the Federal government paid 2 million euros and released 5 imprisoned Boko Haram bomb makers in exchange for the 82 Chibok school girls released on May 6th. 

The Federal government has however not denied claims that there were negotiation with the sect members for the release of the girls. However the details of the negotiations were not clearly stated. 

 
In this new report by BBC, it is alleged that 2 million euros was released in exchange for the girls. Part of the report reads 
"The release of the 82 girls came with a price. Five senior Boko Haram militants were moved from a high security unit to be driven to freedom. The details of the deal are sketchy. Our sources don’t want to be named and their version of events is hard to confirm, but they say the men were high-level Boko Haram bomb-makers, and that they were accompanied by two million euros in cash. Paying a ransom as well as swapping prisoners was a sticking point that almost unravelled the whole deal, one source tells us. It should have happened sooner, but the president was hesitating about freeing the five – and especially about the money,” says the person with detailed knowledge of the deal. Persuading him was “very, very difficult. It was the most difficult part of the whole negotiation. He didn’t want to pay any money. “The ransom was two million euros. Boko Haram asked for euros. They chose the suspects and they gave us the list of girls who would be freed.”

HOW MANY boko haram commanders and terrorists were released in the swap for 82 girls?

That is what the buhari presidency has been so silent on. The GEJ government could not get the girls because it could not get itself to agree to the swap demands by boko haram. Did the demands get any less outrageous? They have been given 2 million euros to revitalise their war against this country and buy new weapons. How many of them were released? Is buhari's FG spending 2 million euros on arming, training, equipping, outfitting, properly feeding, and paying promptly the salaries of the soldiers being sent to put their lives on the line against these murderers? And, the police also? Oh, and let's not forget 2 million euros to ensure a course of psychiatric and psychological care and medical attention as a matter of course, as compulsory, for EACH AND EVERY soldier, no matter the rank, after a tour of duty on the war front. PTSD.

I can't understand the height of foolishness our leaders display. First it was three Boko Haram extremist, now five... What the heck is actually going on? Imagine the explosives and other weapons, planes these extremists will acquire with that kind of money. I don't know again o. Their stories are always contradictory. God help this country 🙏

If it is actually proved that the fedrral govt paid the bomb makers and then released them ( i doubt if any sensible govt will do this) then it simply means that the federal govt is indirectly the problem here

Anybody that believe in this Chibok girls scam need his/her brain examined. APC paying 2million Euros to their boys for hiding the Chibok girls. God has already started punishing the APC led FG for their climatic deception on the Nigerian populace. It has started with Buhari,it will spread gradually. God can't be mocked!

What the Government did was right. The fight against terroriest continues; the so called terroriest has been using this girls as shield and I want you to know that United State do negotiated and has paid more not once for the life of just 1 American. Here we have 82 girls; Think of if, those of you that is saying how will the government negotiate with terroriest; why do you negotiate and pay ransom when a family member of yours is kidnapped? Just to save the persons life you will do anything and it those not stop the police from going after the kidnappers even after the ransom is paid and Most important to you is that your love one is safe and back home. The girls are back home and it those not stop our minitary from war against terroriest.

Thank God for the life's of these once we pray for the others if it takes another negotiation so be it. We all have to pray for them and also you should not find your self in their shoes because they did not wish for it. You will understand more when a close family member of yours is kidnapped or has been kidnapped before. Do not wish this for any of you, to God be praise for this once as we pray for the others and security of our Nation. The war against terroriest is what the world is fighting not only Nigeria.
