“Precisely on 17th July, 2015, the DSS opened negotiations process with the group holding the Chibok girls,” Lai said in a press conference on Friday.

“However, in return for the release of some of these girls, the group also made some demands. These included the release of some of their fighters arrested including some involved in major terrorist actions, resulting in several fatalities, and others who were experts in manufacture of locally assembled explosives.”

He said this was difficult to accept, but Buhari agreed after being informed of the implications by appropriate security agencies.

Mr. Mohammed said the swap did not work because the terror group reneged on the agreement and made more demands.
