No sacrifice is too much for Chibok girls - Baraje

23 June 2014, 07:35

IIorin - A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Kawu Baraje, said on Sunday that no sacrifice would be too much to secure the release of the abducted Chibok girls.

Speaking with newsmen at the graduation ceremony of Baraje Centre for Arabic and Islamic Studies, llorin, the chieftain said the country should consider the swap option being canvassed by the insurgents.

“If the United States of America swapped five prisoners to secure the life of an America soldier, it will not be too much for the Federal Government to negotiate and meet the sect's condition for the release of the abducted girls.”

“Whatever kind of appeasement that will appease the people that are holding these girls should be done, whether negotiation, whether transition, we saw America do it. Just for one person America released five insurgents,” he said.

Baraje observed that Nigeria was in a trying period by the security challenge.

He said that until the girls were released, nobody would believe the efforts made by the Federal Government to secure their release.

Baraje said that efforts were in top gear to affiliate the Islamiya School with Al-Ansur University in Saudi Arabia to further provide opportunities for higher education.
