Nigeria is willing to talk to Boko Haram about securing the release of 223 schoolgirls still held hostage by the Islamists, Special Duties Minister Taminu Turaki told AFP on Tuesday.

Turaki, who last year headed a committee tasked with pursuing an amnesty pact with some Boko Haram fighters, said: “Nigeria has always been willing to dialogue with the insurgents…

“We are willing to carry that dialogue on any issue, including the girls kidnapped in Chibok, because certainly we are not going to say that (the abduction) is not an issue.”
