Nigeria plans to negotiate for release of 110 abducted Dapchi girlsNigeria's presidency said on Monday it plans to negotiate for the release of 110 girls abducted from a school in the northeastern town of Dapchi last month, rather than use a military operation to free them by force. The kidnapping is one of the largest since the jihadist group Boko Haram abducted more than 270 schoolgirls from the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014. Nigeria is grappling with an insurgency by Boko Haram that has killed at least 20,000 people since 2009.
