BRING BACK OUR GIRLS

Boko Haram: Trade Girls for Detainees

Terror group Boko Haram has offered to exchange more than 200 kidnapped young women and girls for the release of militant leaders detained by the Nigerian government, the AP reported Wednesday. A human rights activist said the deal is limited to the 219 girls who were taken from a boarding school in the northeastern Nigeria town of Chibok in April 2014, which sparked an international campaign to "Bring Back Our Girls." The extremists are reprising a deal made with former President Goodluck Jonathan's government last year to exchange the 219 girls for 16 detainees.
