U.S. Secretary of State Visits Nigeria in Shortened Trip

"The recent kidnapping of 110 schoolgirls is heartbreaking," Rex Tillerson said on his arrival in the capital, Abuja, on the final leg of an African tour. For his part, President Muhammadu Buhari said Nigeria was working with international organisations and negotiators to free the girls. "We are trying to be careful. It is better to get our daughters back alive," the president said.

President Muhammadu Buhari met American Secretary of State Rex Tillerson at the presidential offices at Aso Rock, Abuja, on Monday.
