lady amids sobs called on all women
to join in efforts to free the
abducted girls and also called on
wives of heads of Security agents,
some of whom were present at the
meeting to help plead with their
spouses to intensify their efforts in
the search for the girls
“I want to use this opportunity to
appeal to wives of security chiefs
at the national and state levels to
mount pressures on their spouses
to intensify effort to rescue our
dear children. However, I feel it
is necessary to call on all women
in Borno to come up with their
resolutions and harmonize them.
Let us all put our differences
aside irrespective of our faith, or
ethnicity, let us all join hands
together to rescue these girls, I
know that we can do it, Almighty
Allah is with us, He knows our
intention. I am sure for now we
are not on our own, I am happy to
inform you that the wife of the
president called me two days ago,
I believe that she is also with us,
let us all join hands together
irrespective of political
affiliations.” she said
Meanwhile, Director of Defence
Information, Maj-Gen Chris
Olukolade says the military is
getting closer to the Boko Haram
base where the girls are being kept.
He said this yesterday during a tour
with journalist to some of Boko
Haram bases where the military has
been able to dismantle.
“The bases we visited are part of
the responses to the terrorist
offensive and that is an
achievement; the military had
moved close to where the
insurgents are. It shows that the
military had taken over the land.
The morale of the soldiers was
high, and we are expecting to see
more successes from the troops”
he said.
