In spite of calls by some pressure groups, individuals and the international community on the rescue of the over 200 secondary schoolgirls abducted in April 2014 by some terrorists in Borno, the Federal Government has categorically stated that it will not disclose its strategies on the issue.
At a press briefing held in Abuja on Tuesday, National Coordinator of the National Information Centre, Mike Omeri, said government was doing everything humanly possible to ensure the release of the girls, who have been in the terrorists care for six months.
Omeri noted that the FG has recorded successes in its fight against insurgency in the country, mentioning the recent occasional bombardment of Boko Haram camps in north-east Nigeria, the aerial and land surveillances on the terrorists’ locations as some of the government’s successes.
He urged Nigerians not to place the government under pressure over the matter, stating that the fight against insurgency is for all.
Omeri stated that the FG would have loved to reveal its strategies on efforts being made to safely free the girls, but that the operational reality does not give room for such. He assured Nigerians that the schoolgirls would soon taste freedom.
