Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and his Swiss counterpart Alain Berset have strategized on the release of the remaining Chibok girls.

The two leaders came up with new strategies on the return of the kidnapped girls at the hands of the Takfiri Boko Haram group, during a bilateral meeting held on the margins of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP24) on Tuesday.

The two leaders discussed strategies based on the past successes of securing the release of some of the Chibok girls and other abducted persons in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.

In April 2014, 276 female students were kidnapped from Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State. Some of the girls have been released following high powered negotiations.

Buhari, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, pledged that his government will not rest until the remaining Chibok girls are safely released.
