Nigeria Military Close To Rescuing Other Chibok Girls
The Defence Headquarters, Abuja, on Sunday, the 25th day of December, 2016 said the troops of the Nigerian Army were close to rescuing other Boko Haram captives in the Sambisa Forest, including the Chibok girls.
Brig.-Gen. Rabe Abubakar, the Director, Defence Information, said this in an interview, with Punch.
He said, “We should allow for calm in this operation, which is still ongoing. We have yet to come to point zero. We have taken over the heart and the centre of Sambisa.
“The operation will culminate with Operation Rescue Finale which will end only when all the captives, including the Chibok girls have been rescued, and this would be soon.
“There are things we want to keep to ourselves for now. Everyone should understand that now that Sambisa is under the control of the military, there will be more rescues. We cannot say what will jeopardise the rescue operations of the troops.”
