Parents of the Chibok girls have urged President Muhammadu Buhari, to pay an additional ransom to secure the release of the remaining abducted girls.
They made the appeal following a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), that the Federal Government paid at least €2million to get the 82 girls released.
The report also disclosed that the five Boko Haram Commanders who were swapped for the girls alongside the alleged sum, were specialists in bomb making.
“The government should do anything they can to bring back our daughters – even if it means they have to pay to get them back. My daughters are not among the rescued girls,” One of the Chibok girls’ parent, whose two daughters have yet to be rescued, Rev. Enoch Mark, said.
Another parent, Yana Galang, said, “I am still in Abuja. My daughter is not among them. The government should assist us and secure the release of more girls by all means. We are happy. We are grateful for their efforts so far.”
The Federal government has, however, not denied claims that there was negotiation with the sect members for the release of the girls.
