Discountenancing the jabs thrown at the disclosure, the Nigerian military, on Wednesday, insisted that it is aware of the locations where the over 200 abducted Chibok secondary school girls were being held.

Defence Spokesperson, Major-General Chris Olukolade, who spoke at the regular briefing by the National Information Centre, Abuja said, “let everyone believe what the Chief of Defence Staff said and if you don’t believe, wait for developments, but our interest is in the safety of these children and every effort will be put towards that and we expect cooperation from everyone.

“We remain with the position taken by the CDS. When we have any further comments or developments, the nation will be told.”

Meanwhile, the presidential fact-finding committee on the abducted Chibok schoolgirls, on Thursday, visited Chibok, Borno State, in continuation of its investigation into the April 14 incident.

Spokesman of the committee, Kingsley Osadolor, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja.

Osadolor said the committee members were received at Chibok by the state Commissioner for Education, Chairman of Chibok Local Government, five district heads of the surrounding communities, chairman of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of the affected school, the principal and parents of the girls.

“The committee later held an interactive session with the Chibok communities on the school premises. At the meeting, chairman of the committee, Brigadier-General Ibrahim Sabo, said the committee sympathised with the parents and other community members over the havoc of the insurgents and assured the people of President Goodluck Jonathan’s concern about the fate of the abducted students,” he said.

One of the parents of the abducted girls, Reverend Enoch Mark, whose two daughters were abducted in the school, speaking at the meeting, according to the statement, reportedly frowned on what he called the politicisation of the abduction, pointing out that the matter was also not religious, because affected families were adherents of the country’s major faiths.
