The Nigerian Military has reiterated its commitment to finding the missing Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists in April last year.

In an exclusive interview with Channels Television, Acting Director of Defence Intelligence, Colonel Rabe Abubakar, said the military does have a strategy towards finding the girls, but the main focus is that the girls are rescued alive.

He also wants Nigerians to disregard videos and audio recordings of Boko Haram members, claiming victory over the military.

“The issue of the celebration shouldn’t bother Nigerians,” adding that “we are the ones fighting, we know what we have done, we know how far we are planning and we won’t be distracted by that.”

According to Col. Abubakar, “As far as Nigerian military is concerned, we are succeeding in isolating them, we are succeeding in ensuring that their hideout have been completely trashed.

“As I’m speaking with you, we will continue doing the coordination and process between the Air Force and Army to ensure that the so called ‘terrorist’ will no longer have business in the country.”

He also noted that the military will not be distracted by the group’s ploy to present a false impression of the war against terror to Nigerians.

“We are on course, we have however, rescued civilians from the terrorist,” Col. Abubakar said, adding:

“I believe you must have read it on paper even last week, we rescued about 300 children and women.

“As long as we rescue those groups of people, I will want to believe that rescuing Chibok Girls is certain.

“But we have to be extremely cautious, careful and we are planning towards rescuing them alive and unharmed.”

Colonel Abubakar, talking about how equipped the military is, said that ” we are comfortable with the average equipment we have on ground which can sustain us, make us confront not only the Boko Haram but any other force.

“I am assuring Nigerians that we are not leaving any stone unturned as regards terrorist activities,” he said.
