Nigeria scorns Boko Haram's captive girls swap offer

Nigeria will not release imprisoned militants in exchange for kidnapped schoolgirls. 

Nigeria has insisted it will not agree to a request to free imprisoned Islamic militants in return for the release of dozens of kidnapped schoolgirls. Interior Minister Abba Moro said Boko Haram, the group holding the girls, was in no moral position to make the offer.

However, the information ministry had earlier said all options were on the table, after the group released a video of the girls and suggested a swap.
