About Chibok girls were kidnapped from there school on the 14th and 15th of April 2014 by the Boko Haram sect in Chibok Maiduguri Borno State Northeast Nigeria, in a numerous counter attacks the Nigerian military has on a number of occasion attacked, decimated, and degraded the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram. The Army have now confirmed the possibility that most of the over 214 girls are alive and allegedly kept in two locations in the North-east.
This was disclosed by the Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj-Gen. Leo Irabor, through the CNN Special Report yesterday on the ongoing counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations.
Irabor said credible military intelligence indicates that Chibok school girls are still being held in a Sambisa Forest, which is the remaining stronghold of the terrorists, and as well as a location close to the Chad-Niger border.
The commander’s lead is coming barely two months after the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Director of Public Relations and Information (DOPRI) of the Air Force, Group Capt. Ayodele Famuyiwa, disclosed that the military had discovered the location of the girls but that the areas cannot be attacked for the safety of the girls.
“We have no fears that the girls are not there because that particular location has been under surveillance for quite a while and we suspect that maybe it’s a kind of ammunition depot or maybe a workshop that they are using as their logistics place.
“Once you take off the logistics base, of course you gradually weaken the resolve of the enemy to be able to prosecute any campaign,” Famuyiwa was quoted to have stated.
The Army however promised Nigerian and the parents of the kidnapped girls that they will do everything possible to ensure the girls return home in no time.
