Olonishakin
The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Abayomi Olonishakin, on Monday declared that the currently detained Boko Haram members will only be freed by a political decision.

The sect in a new video released at the weekend demanded the release of its members before freeing the abducted Chibok girls.
The terror group also threatened to attack Lagos, Abuja and Borno States to release its detained members in those states.
But speaking with State House correspondents after a security meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Olonishakin noted that such political decision was not within his jurisdiction.
President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo were conspicuously absent at the meeting.
The CDS, however, said the military operation against Boko Haram will continue.
