Boko Haram is reportedly demanding a roughly $50 million ransom for the more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls who were abducted nearly two years ago.
This isn't the first time the terrorist group has offered the girls' release. Past negotiations brokered by the Red Cross and through the Nigerian president have only fallen through.
Sources told The Telegraph Boko Haram issued the new ransom deal reportedly during secret meetings with the Nigerian president, but the "rumors" of the ransom don't have many convinced.
