Senator Shehu Sani has advised the Federal Government to negotiate with the Boko Haram sect to secure the release of the Chibok girls.

Sani said past negotiations did not yield the desired result because the government entered into talks with scam negotiators.
The Senator also advised the government to be very careful while negotiating with Boko Haram.
He also said “When President Muhammadu Buhari took over, a section of our country was taken over by the insurgence group. They hosted their flags and even unleashed their version of theocratic Islamic group. But now, with funding for the military and support by the government, the morale is high, the military had been able to push them back and most of the cities in the North-East are safe.
“Buhari has not been able to achieve 100 per cent success but he has made serious progress. I believe he can still achieve more. With the very fact that now, they know clearly they cannot win militarily and the only option is to go for other ways. There is no other way other than for them to agree to negotiate on the release of these girls.”
Sani added that  “Negotiations have taken place in a number of countries. There were negotiations between the Israelis government and Hamas, which led to the release of some Israelis soldiers; the same thing with Taliban and America brokered by Qatar.
“We believe that Nigeria will take this opportunity. I believe with such a credible video, there is light at the end of the tunnel that these girls are alive and that very source that provided this video should be used to get these girls out.”
Meanwhile, Boko Haram leaders have reportedly expressed their anger over the leaked video footage showing the Chibok girls.
They said the video was recorded as proof of life for negotiators, and not for the media.
