Lai Mohammed insists no ransom was paid for Dapchi girls release


Minister of information, Lai Mohammed maintains that the federal government did not pay any ransom to procure Dapchi girls release. According to the UN report recently, a large sum of money was paid by the Nigerian government for the release of the over 100 school girls abducted by Boko Haram in Febraury this year.

The UN report is titled “22nd Report of the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team”, said “In Nigeria, 111 schoolgirls from the town of Dapchi were kidnapped on 18 February 2018 and released by ISWAP on 21 March 2018 in exchange for a large ransom payment.”

Mr Mohammed shortly after the girls were released, revealed that no ransom was paid and Boko haram prisoners were not released in exchange for the girls. However, with this new report from UN, the Minister’s claim becomes quite shaky.
