NIGERIA (TAB, BP) — Disheartening reports recently surfaced related to the announced coming release of the kidnapped schoolgirls in Nigeria. Nigeria’s military announced the agreement with Boko Haram in which the jihadists agreed to release the girls Oct. 17, but many analysts and others questioned the credibility of the announcement after suspected Boko Haram terrorists raided three communities in Borno state Oct. 18–19. In the supposed cease-fire, the girls were to be released no later than Oct. 21, Nigerian military leaders said in news reports. As of noon Oct. 22, negotiations have not resumed and Boko Haram leaders have been silent.
