Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari government paid the sum of €3million to the dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram, for the latest release of a batch of Chibok girls.
Fani-Kayode writing on Twitter, stated that he got the figure from the Wall Street Journal and wondered how much “went back into buying arms for Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen”.
He tweeted: “The Wall Street Journal claims that the Buhari govt paid €3million as ransome to Boko Haram for the latest release of a batch of Chibok girls.
“I wonder how much of that money went back into buying arms for BH and the Fulani herdsmen? The picture is getting clearer by the day.”
The Bring Back Our Girls group recently faulted the Buhari’s administration over its silence on the remaining girls in captivity.
