Goodluck Jonathan cancels visit to village where Boko Haram kidnapped 200 schoolgirls.
Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has called off a visit the town where more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted, officials say. Sources had told the BBC he would stop in Chibok, in the north-east, on his way to a conference in France on the threat from Boko Haram militants.
But the visit was called off for security reasons, the officials said. The president – under pressure over his government's failure to rescue the girls – will fly direct to Paris.
