    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.”
