When on April 14, 2014, some bloodthirsty bandits from the Boko Haram terror group invaded the premises of Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State and made away with close to 300 schoolgirls, not a few thought that the long arms of the Nigerian state would soon catch up with them and their innocent captives liberated. But today marks 500 days since that dreadful incident that reverberated all through the world took place; yet, there has been no sign of the girls.

Boko Haram Submits The List Of terrorists To Be Traded For Chibok Girls

Representatives of the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents may have submitted a list of its men it wants the Federal Government to release in exchange for the abducted school girls seized at the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State in April, a Punch report said.   The process of verification of the status of the men on the list has also started, the report quoted a security source as saying.

This verification is to ascertain the state of health of the Boko Haram men.  The source, according to the report, claims that the on-going talks with representatives of the insurgents in the Chadian capital have witnessed great progress, claiming there had been other meetings at three different locations held in the spirit of the ongoing peace deal.

He dismissed fears that the insurgents may decide to back out of the negotiations because of recent confrontations with security forces.
