The Nigerian military yesterday restated its commitment towards the rescue of Chibok girls and other innocent victims being held captives by Boko Haram terrorists.
Acting Director Defence Information, Colonel Rabe Abubakar said in a statement while responding to various reports on the plights of Chibok girls and other captives in Boko Haram’s den: “The Nigerian military and other security agencies are working round the clock to secure the release of not only the Chibok girls but other innocent citizens who are held hostage by the terrorists.
“The military, being a component of the society, is equally worried and is doing everything possible to address the current security challenges. The search for abducted Chibok school girls and the rescue of other Nigerian in hostage has never relapse as could be attested to in recent times where hundreds of women and children were rescued by the military through its coordinated operations.
“The military will continue to sustain the operation until the entire North East is cleared of all terrorists and miscreants.”
While denying a recent media report on an escapee who alleged pregnancy of most Chibok girls, the military Spokesman urged the media to always verify their information before going to the press. He added: “The DHQ is not unmindful of the media’s good intention in this regards however, we wish to advise reporters and any other stakeholders to be good partners in ensuring their safe rescue and successful termination of terrorists campaign.”
