#AceNewsReport – Sept.17: The Nigerian government is talking to the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram to try to secure the release of more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls, presidential spokesman Femi Adesina said in a tweet quoting President Muhammadu Buhari.
Military from Nigeria and Chad freed hundreds of hostages from Boko Haram captivity earlier this year. However, none of those rescued were from the 219 girls abducted in April 2014 from a school in the northern town of Chibok, AP said.
In July, Buhari predicted that Boko Haram would be defeated in 18 months or less, but conceded that Nigerian authorities lack intelligence about the missing girls after the mass kidnapping from Chibok.
