Interior Minister Abba Moro who yesterday hastily dismissed Boko Haram’s offer to swap the abducted students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, with the sect’s imprisoned members, spoke only for himself, it has emerged.
A government statement issued last night in Abuja indicated that controversial Moro’s views did not represent the thinking of the Nigerian Government. The statement from the National Information Centre on the abducted schoolgirls, issued by Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr. Mike Omeri, said as follows: “Government is reviewing the content of the video and the accompanying statement issued by the sect.
“Government will continue to explore all options for the release and safe return of our girls back to their homes.
“An earlier report by a section of the media purported to have been issued by Government is totally false.”
