Abducted Girls: US Special Forces to Storm Nigeria
The US Special forces will anytime soon storm Nigeria in the search-and-rescue operation of the abducted Chibok school girls.
Apart from rescuing the abducted school girls, the United States security forces were also on a mission to Nigeria to bring terrorist activities inflicted on innocent citizens of Nigeria in parts of the country by the dreaded Boko Haram sect to an end.
All this was contained in the communication of the United States President Barack Obama with President Jonathan offering to deploy US security personnel and assets to work with the Nigerian security forces.
The special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, who stated this during a press briefing with the State House correspondents in Abuja yesterday, added that Jonathan heartily welcomed Obama’s offer which was conveyed to him by the US secretary of state Mr John Kerry in a telephone conversation which started about 3:30pm yesterday.
Abati said, “President Goodluck Jonathan Tuesday welcomed and accepted a definite offer of help from the United States in the ongoing effort to locate and rescue the girls abducted from the Government Secondary School, Chibok, three weeks ago.”
The presidential spokesman said Kerry assured Jonathan that the US was “wholly committed to giving Nigeria all required support and assistance to save the abducted girls and bring the reign of terror unleashed on parts of the country by Boko Haram to an end”.
Jonathan thanked Kerry for the offer of further assistance, even as he told the UN under-secretary that Nigeria’s security agents “who were already working at full capacity to find and rescue the abducted girls would appreciate the deployment of American counter-insurgency know-how and expertise in support of their efforts”.
Abati said, “After speaking with the United States secretary of state, President Jonathan today met with the chief of defence staff, service chiefs and heads of national security agencies in continuation of the national efforts to find and rescue the abducted girls”.
