Haram terrorists By Seun Opejobi on July

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, says the swap of Boko Haram prisoners to secure the release of the second batch of 82 abducted Chibok schoolgirls was a political decision, not that of the military .
Featuring on BBC Programme, Hard Talk on Tuesday, the Army Chief said the Federal Government, at that time, believed that the decision to swap the prisoners for the girls was the best.
According to Buratai, “As far as I am concerned, we performed our own role for the safe passage of the abducted Chibok girls.
“The Boko Haram terrorists’ swap for the Chibok schoolgirls was a political decision, not a military decision. It is in the best interest of the nation and based on the circumstances, the government felt it was the best course.
