Moh’d, Concise News understands, said this recently at a briefing at the Department of African Studies, Georgetown University, Washington DC.
According to him, it is working with its Swiss partners and others for the release of the girls.
“A few days ago was the fifth anniversary of the abducted girls and that means they were kidnapped more than a year before President Muhammadu Buhari administration came into power,” the minister noted.
“It was the engagement of this government that led to the release of 107 of the girls and what I can assure you is that the government is still engaging in trying to find out where the girls are and what has become of them.
“However, some of these negotiations are very delicate due largely to the fact that it takes a lot of time and there is a sort of fractionalisation within the terrorist group.
“We are still working with our Swiss partners and the others everyday so that we can be able to track where these girls are, what have become of them and how many are left.
“However, these are not something you can disclose, anyhow because of the sensitivity.”
