Kidnapped Chibok Girls Moved from Sambisa Forest to Ashaka Forest in Gombe – Report
Ahead of the planned operation by the US and UK specialist forces to rescue the kidnapped Chibok girls, the members of the Boko Haram sect have reportedly moved the girls from the Sambisa forest towards the forest around Ashaka in Gombe State.
This latest development is coming barely few hours after a Sky News report said the satellite image showed the girls have been split into four group.
According to the security personnel who revealed the details of the latest development to Premium Times, the ongoing cooperation between Nigerian officials and their counterparts from the U.S. and U.K. on the rescue efforts gives high hopes that for the quick rescue of the girls.
“We noticed and observed movement of some of the girls from the Sambisa region towards Ashaka forest in Gombe state”, said the security personnel.
The officer added that efforts are being put in place to “carefully track” the abductors and get the girls freed.
“We have not, even for once, lost hope that these girls would be freed. This is a delicate matter which must be handled with all professionalism and absolute care”, the source added.
For almost a month that the over 250 girls were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School, Chibok, the Nigerian military has decided not to provide information on details of its rescue efforts.
The military has, however, said it is doing its best to free the girls.
Efforts to speak to the military spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, on the latest report of the girls’ sighting were unsuccessful as he did not pick or return calls nor respond to a text message sent to his phone.
