Nigeria president Goodluck Jonathan cancels visit to abducted girls' village
Visit to Chibok would have been leader's 1st since Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 students
Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has cancelled his first visit to the village from which more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted by rebels a month ago due to security fears, a senior government source said on Friday.
- Nigeria won't negotiate prisoner swap with schoolgirl kidnappers
- Nigeria schoolgirls just part of Africa's cruel history of child soldiers, enslavement
- Canada part of effort to free 300 Nigerian schoolgirls
Jonathan will fly on Friday from the capital Abuja to Paris for a regional summit to discuss the Boko Haram insurgency and wider insecurity and will not now make a stop in the northeastern village of Chibok, said the source.
