He also guaranteed to provide safe release of girls and to reunite them with their families. 'It is a result of the round-the-clock efforts of the administration to solve a problem of the kidnapping of girls.

He has added: 'Regardless of the fact that it will turn out in, we will try to receive control over a mutiny of Boko Haram, and we will make it by means of a military operation, peace talks and dialogue. I think that in general, fight against a mutiny is a combination of a carrot and stick. The federal government will continue to use such way.
