Gist: ChiBOK Girls - With the new Video, SHould Nigeria NEGOTIATE?  (Read 1514 times)

It has been two days since the jihadist sect Boko Haram released a video that showed as many as 50 of the missing Chibok schoolgirls still alive, and the Nigerian government has yet to reach out to the family of the girl who was singled out in the video.

The lack of contact has again left the families of the Chibok girls feeling neglected.

"No one from the Nigerian government has contacted us. Maybe it's because we are poor or because we don't have oil in Chibok. We are nobody. But I am glad to know that God has answered my prayers by keeping her alive," said Esther Yakubu, whose daughter appeared in the video. "The message I have for the federal government is to release the [jailed] fighters so that the [other] fighters will release the girls.”

In the latest Boko Haram video, Yakubu's daughter Dorcas Maida Yakubu spoke in her native language.
