29 November 2016, 10:46

Abuja - The Presidency is currently holding talks with members of the deadly Boko Haram group for the release of more Chibok girls

Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina disclosed this on Monday shortly after delivering lectures at the Nigerian Army School of Public Relations and Information (NASPRI) annual media workshop for Defence Correspondents and Commanding Officers.

Adesina according to Sun said with talks still ongoing, many more girls would be recovered.

He denied reports that federal government knows sponsors of Boko Haram.

He stated that if government knows the sponsors and it is sure that they are sponsors, they would not be spared.

News 24 recalls that the dreaded terrorist group had on October 13, 2016 released 21 girls out of the  more than 200 girls abducted from their schools in Borno State in 2014
