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
