Nigeria’s military is moving into Boko Haram’s hideout in Sambisa Forest, Borno State, and is focusing operations on areas it believes more than 200 abducted schoolgirls from Chibok are being held.

A Bloomberg online report quotes the Spokesman of the National Information Centre, Mr. Mike Omeri, as saying today in an e-mailed statement: “Presently, the military is moving into the Sambisa forest after taking Alagarno, Gwoza, Bama, Malam Fatori, Abadam, among others.

“Our intelligence indicates that the present military operation is focused in the area where the girls are believed to be held.”

The majority of the students abducted on April 14 last year are still missing.

The Goodluck Jonathan administration has promised to liberate Sambisa Forest before it hands over power to the incoming government of Muhammadu Buhari on May 29 this year.
