Locations where the abducted Chibok school girls are being held may have been identified by the Nigerian Air Force, according to security indications late Friday night.
The Director of Public Relations of the Nigeria Air Force, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said the force has therefore abstained from attacking the identified areas to avoid hitting the girls. The latest aerial bombardment of Sambisa forest, Famuyiwa said, had been aimed at the logistics base of the Boko Haram sect and not areas where the Chibok girls could be located.
He told Channels TV that: “We have no fears that the girls are not there because hat particular location has been under surveillance for quite a while and we suspected maybe it’s a kind of ammunition depot or maybe a workshop that they are using as their logistics place. “Once you take off the logistics base, of course you gradually weaken the resolve of the enemy to be able to prosecute any campaign.”
