Military Men Are Yet To Rescue School Girls…We Have Only 14 Who Escaped On Their Own- School Principal

The Principal of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Asabe Kwambura, has said the military lied when they said they had rescued almost all the girls, excluding 8 who were kidnapped on Monday by suspected Boko Haram sect members from the school premises.

She told Premium Times this morning that, “There is nothing in the military statement that is true about our abducted girls. Up till now we are still waiting and praying for the safe return of the students; all I know is that we have only 14 of them, and the security people especially the Vigilante and the well-meaning volunteers of Gwoza are still out searching for them. The military people too are in the bush searching. So we have not received any information that they have gotten the students yet. So let it be clear that all the information passed on the media by the military concerning 107 girls is not true, she said”. Continue after the cut.

It will be recalled that, the military spokesperson at the Defence Headquarters, yesterday issued a statement claiming that 107 abducted girls were freed; adding that only eight of the girls were still missing and the military was searching for them. He also claimed that a member of the Boko Haram sect that participated in the abduction has also been nabbed.

As it is now, the reports contradict each other, and we really hope the girls are safe.
