Like a twist of hope, the Boko Haram, who do not want any negotiation with the Federal government has offered to release the Chibok girls they abducted freedom, if the Super Eagles lift the 2014 Brazil FIFA world cup. A condition so tempting to Keshi and his lads.
Although, Keshi had said winning the world cup is possible, this is the time to prove it for the sake of the Chibok girls, if not for the general joy of all Nigerians.
