Jonathan Rejects Boko Haram Prisoner Swap For Abducted Schoolgirls

Abuja (AFP) – Nigeria on Monday rejected conditions set out by Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau for the release of more than 200 schoolgirls held hostage by the Islamists.

Asked if the government would reject the suggestion mentioned by Shekau in a new video that the girls may be released once Nigeria frees all militant prisoners, Interior Minister Abba Moro told AFP: “Of course.”

“The issue in question is not about Boko Haram… giving conditions,” he said.
