Boko Haram: Army Vows To Rescue Remaining Abducted Chibok Girls, UNIMAID Staff
The Nigerian Army has said it will stop at nothing to rescue all abducted citizens by the dreaded Boko Haram sect, especially the Chibok girls and the University of Maiduguri staff.
The Force Commander of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, Major General Lucky Irabor, said this in Maiduguri, on Tuesday, at a meeting with Theatre commander of Multi National Joint Task Force, Major General Rogers Nicholas.
According to him, the meeting was held to ensure all involved on the counter terrorism in the Lake Chad General area and the north east are on the same page.
“We’re are fighting terrorism and insurgency; terrorism does not have respect for any border and that’s the reason the MNJTF needs to interact with national operations commanders to share information and share thoughts regarding what we are doing and encourage each other regarding the operation in general.
He added that stability is returning to the Lake Chad Basin and the coming days cross border commerce would improve as well as socio economic activities.
On his part, Nicholas assured of the military’s commitment to rescue all law abiding citizens abducted by the criminals including the Chibok girls and the university of Maiduguri staff.
“The operation is actor board we are making efforts to see how we can rescue all these people but among some of the people that we have rescued from the operation and some have been able to find their way out of the forest we screen them and hand them.
“Over to the appropriate authorities but for those specific ones you mentioned we’re still trailing them we’re still on their back and we hope that very soon we’ll be able to get to that point.”
