The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has denied reports that a ransom of two million euro was paid by the Federal Government of Nigeria to terrorist group, Boko Haram for the release of the 82 Chibok girls.

He said this in a response to a BBC claim that Boko Haram received the ransom as part of the deal to release the girls.
He said

“Apart from the five Boko Haram commanders, the exchange of which we have already made public, no other concession was made.
“Any other thing to the contrary is absolutely false.

“I emphatically deny on behalf of the Federal Government that any sum of ransom was paid in exchange of the 82 Chibok girls.”
