Abuja – Boko Haram militants are reportedly believed to be ready for talks with the federal government, a development that could lead to the freedom of the kidnapped Chibok girls.
According to The Nation, Hajiya Aisha Wakil, who is said to be close to the militants said the group was ready for dialogue.
She said the group’s leadership might soon make a pronouncement on their plan for the girls.
"…They have now agreed to come out and discuss with the government and bring back the girls. I am for the Chibok girls and all the captives. They are ready for peace. This is what they told me," Wakil was reported as saying.
At least 219 girls from Chibok are still missing after they were abducted in 2014.
