We have clues to rescue kidnapped Chibok girls – FG

The National Information Centre (NIC) yesterday said it has received pieces of information that may help in rescuing over 200 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from Government Girls’ Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State on April 14.

Coordinator of the centre, Mr. Mike Omeri, who made this known while briefing newsmen on the update of military operations in the North-East of the country, said: “We are moving closer to finding them (kidnapped girls); at least, we have identified a number of leads in the course of this exercise (military operations).”

He said some of the information gathered by the security agencies about the missing girls were what led to the arrest of the chief intelligence officer of the Boko Haram group and their female members.

Omeri, who said government was working round the clock to rescue the girls unharmed, Added: “We are getting there, but some of the other information please, bear with me and bear with the security forces, they are still classified.’’

Calling on Nigerians to continue to be vigilant as people with dubious character and intension were moving to new areas so as not to be detected, the coordinator equally advised landlords to do a thorough background check on their prospective tenants before giving out their property to avoid people with criminal intent.

He said: “Most of these people moving to these areas are people we are actually looking for; so, know your tenant as you welcome them into your premises. Landlords must check clearly where their tenants are coming from because of late, people with dubious character and intentsions have moved to new areas.”
