The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity matter, Mr. Femi Adesina, in an interview on Radio Continental 102.3 FM
said the former administration was swindled off of millions of
dollars by those masquerading to be leaders of Boko Haram when former
Pres. Jonathan’s administration tried to secure the release of the
kidnapped Chibok girls.
“We need to know a little bit of what happened behind the scenes,
between the last government and some people masquerading as the
leadership of Boko Haram who wanted to get the Chibok girls released”.
“They actually turned it into a franchise, it became a commercial thing
and they got money, possibly in millions of dollars, only for
government to discover it had been swindled. They kept saying they could
get the girls released , they could interface with Boko Haram and they
went smiling to the bank with all that money, and nothing happened”.
“So you should understand why this government is being careful and the
President has said the genuineness of the leadership of Boko Haram must
be determined before any negotiation takes place”.
