Nigeria willing to negotiate for missing Dapchi girls

Following the success achieved with the release of some 82 Chibok girls after negotiation with the insurgent group Boko Haram, Nigeria's president, Muhammadu Buhari has made a decision to use that same approach in having the rest of the schoolgirls abducted from Chibok and Dapchi returned alive.

With the visit, Tillerson becomes the highest ranking official in the Trump administration to visit Nigeria.

"We are trying to be careful".

Nigeria and the United States of America are set to establish a Commercial and Investment Dialogue as well as a Trade and Investment Framework Council between the two countries as a way of deepening trade and investment opportunities.

He said his government is prioritizing negotiation rather than military option.

Nigeria's militant Islamist group Boko Haram is fighting to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state.

Buhari and the US Secretary of State also discussed counter-terrorism efforts and humanitarian issues in Nigeria's North-East and in the Lake Chad Basin. I think that is the best way we have been helping the government of Nigeria secure the release of the girls, which we hope, will be done in a peaceful manner.

When a similar incident occurred four years ago with the Chibok girls, some of the girls were released after negotiations to have them exchanged for Boko Haram prisoners and ransom payments.

In his response, the visiting U.S. Secretary of State commended President Buhari on his strides in the anti-corruption war, to which the Nigerian leader responded that moneys recovered are being invested on development of infrastructure.

Nigeria on its part through its Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama thanked the United States for the technical support given towards tackling terrorism in its borders. When we talked of having degraded Boko Haram, we were referring specifically to the situation that we confronted when the government took over. So as a conventional military threat, Boko Haram has been completely degraded.
