The Musab Al-Barnawi faction of Boko Haram is suspected of being behind the abduction.

According to Buhari, having weighed the options available to the Nigerian government, it came to the realisation that full military option would compromise the safety of abductees.

Tillerson was in Abuja, Nigeria's capital yesterday, where he pledged the support of the U.S. in securing the quick release of the Dapchi and remaining Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists.

He rather indicated that Nigeria was working with global organizations and negotiators, to ensure that the girls were brought back unharmed.

"We are trying to be careful".

Receiving the American Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, at State House, Abuja, Monday, Mr. Buhari added that Nigeria was working with worldwide organisations and negotiators, to ensure that the girls were released unharmed by their captors.

The Secretary expressed concern about the recent attacks and abductions and agreed to expand counterterrorism cooperation to diminish the threats to United States and Nigerian interests.

He also thanked America for its assistance in the fight against insurgency, and calling for further help for the local army "in the areas of training and equipment".

President Buhari added that he would be in Yobe State later in the week, from where the Dapchi schoolgirls were abducted "as part of my condolence and sympathy visits to areas where we have had unfortunate events".

He also pledged to ensure a free and fair polls in 2019.

Nigeria's militant Islamist group Boko Haram is fighting to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state. They reviewed plans for presidential elections in 2019, and considered opportunities to promote Nigeria's economic recovery, enhance trade, and increase investment.

When a similar incident occurred four years ago with the Chibok girls, some of the girls were released after negotiations to have them exchanged for Boko Haram prisoners and ransom payments.

The visiting Secretary of State commended President Buhari on his strides in the anti-corruption war, to which the Nigerian leader responded that moneys recovered are being invested on development of infrastructure.
