WE HAVE GIRLS IN SIGHT, DEFENCE HEADQUARTERS INSISTS

Defence HQ

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) Wednesday stood by the claim made by the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh that it had located the 200 plus girls who were abducted from their secondary school in Chibok over a month ago.

Badeh on Monday had said the military had located the missing teenagers, but would not want to resort to force to rescue them in order to avoid collateral damage.

The DHQ was reacting to the sceptism expressed by the US State Department the next day over Badeh’s claim, stating that it had no “independent information” on the matter.

The State Department also issued a statement yesterday to correct erroneous assertions that the longtime human rights tool commonly known as the “Leahy Law” in some way could hinder US partnership efforts with the Nigerian government to rescue the kidnapped schoolgirls from Boko Haram.

This is just as the British tabloid, Daily Mail, reported that Britain will be joining the United States to send soldiers to Nigeria, but the troops would not be involved directly in the hunt for the girls or take an active role in any military action against the terrorist group, Boko Haram.
