Not yet eureka: Chibok girls not among 293 rescued women



Friends and relative of the missing Chibok girls cant celebrate yet, because the girls are not among the 293 girls and women rescued from the Sambisa forest by the military during a raid on Tuesday.

When news of the rescue broke on the tweeter handle of the military on Tuesday, many speculated that that the freed ladies included the Chibok schoolgirls.

The Director, Defence Information, Maj. Gen. Chris Olukolade, who confirmed that the troops of the Nigerian Army rescued 200 girls and 93 women during a raid on Sambisa Forest on Tuesday, however did not confirm whether or not the Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram on April 14, 2014 were among the rescued ladies.

However, independent sources have told the CNN that the girls are definitely not among the rescued ladies, raising more questions as to where the girls might be, and whether or not they are still alive

    Have i been excited over this piece of news? No! I need to see tape(s) of these women to believe. Too many questions need to be addressed. Were these ladies picked up from one hut or warehouse? How come there were no helpless men among them? Or, has the army been gathering a few persons who had gone astray over time and assembled same as rescued hostages. Just my thoughts o.
