Parents, school principal say no girl was rescued in Chibok

Yesterday evening we all heard the happy news that over a hundred secondary school girls abducted on Monday evening at Government Girls Secondary School Chibok had been freed by the military. But unfortunately this information is not true.

Parents of the missing girls, the principal of the school and Borno state governor told reporters this morning that the military lied about the rescue operation as the girls were still missing.

Below is what the principal of the school, Mrs Asabe Kwambura, told Premium Times this morning:
"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. I, as the principal did not tell any body any figure on released students other than what our Governor, His Excellency Kashim Shettima had informed the media.” Continue...
Borno state Governor, ashim Shettima told the BBC Hausa service this morning that only 14 girls had escaped
“We have recovered 14 of the girls and we have announced a N50 million reward for any credible information that will help us get our girls released and rejoined with their families.” 
Military spokesperson Major General Chris Olukolade, had issued a statement yesterday claiming that over 100 abducted girls had been freed and only 8 were missing. But when contacted again, Olukayode said it was the principal of the school who told the military that only eight girls were now missing.

The Principal defended herself by saying;
"I told them that I don’t want to be seen to be contradicting myself on that because what the governor said was what we know about; and I told them there may be additional rescue of the girls, but up to this moment we have not received any of them apart from what we had before.What the governor said is still the true picture of the whole issue and that information given by the military is totally wrong.”

I had my reservation when I read the news here of their rescue.A lot is going on with the khaki boys that Nigerians are not privy to.The millitary in a bid to retain their credibility can do anything to bulshit the people.Right from the day this insurgency started,there have been hide and seek in the army's press releases.I won't say much but time will blow all of their gimmicks and all that is hidden will be made known.I only pity the low ranking soldiers whose lives are in their mouth each time they face the BH.

Nigeria can never fight BH until we ask for international help, BH will continue to terrorise our country. Let me ask does it mean dat UN can not come for our help? After so many international mission Nigeria have helped in fighting as UN member. With loss of life and reources. Why they can't help Nigeria fight BH?

The issue of bokoharam cannot but be traced to the military in the country among other factors. Since the inception of democracy in the country, a lot might have not been going alright within the military not forgetting the fact that there was negotiation, deliberation and agreement before military decided to give democracy space, it didn't just happen by chance. Military has benefited more than ever from the crisis most especially the generals. A lot of confession has been made how they found some soldiers training BHaram, General Azazi wanted to talk but he was killed, when Jonathan got to know about this conspiracy, he said there is BH in his government, he was warned and started to play along, Al-Mustapha was released as ordered by the big wings in the military, Politicians don't want military back and are not ready to die so they continue to dance to their tune.

The news making the round says the girls have been released. Now we here otherwise that they have nit been released. What are we to believe?

That fool should be sacked! Instead of searching for the students, they anoounced they had found them. These are the boko haram sponsors deceiving Nigerians. If the media did not follow up, everyone would have believed the story while these girls suffer at the hands of their captors. I hate this country more each day. Animals!
