There were indications yesterday that the 230 female students abducted by Boko Haram terrorists from the Government Girls’ Secondary School, GGSS, Chibok, Borno State, have been sited at the Sambisa Forest in Borno State, by the Special Forces of the United States Marines, reports Saturday Vanguard.

The girls who were abducted on April 14, were part of the 250 students boarded at the school for the West African School Certificate, WASC/Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSSC) examinations, triggering world-wide condemnations.

Saturday Vanguard quoted unnamed sources in Abuja as saying that members of the United States Marines who are already in Maiduguri following the promise by President Barak Obama to assist Nigeria in rescuing the abducted girls, located the girls inside the forest, using some Satellite equipment which combed the forest, located an assembly of the young girls and sent the images back to the Marines on ground in Maiduguri.

The paper also quotes the sources as disclosing that one of the Boko Haram leaders “was arrested, through an advanced interceptor equipment which was used to track the terrorist while exchanging information with his colleagues in Sambisa Forest about the movements of American and Nigerian soldiers in Maiduguri.

“His phone was subsequently traced to a location in Maiduguri where he was arrested and handed over to the Nigerian military.”

News Express had this morning reported the optimism of President Goodluck Jonathan that the girls would be located by the use of remote sensor and rescued. His words: “The attackers are in a part of Borno State described as Sambisa forest. It is a forest area and we are working with the experts that will use remote sensor to see that wherever they are we will seen.”
