The Federal Government has set up a 24-hour information gathering centre that will be consistently in charge of information gathering and dissemination in the government’s effort to rescue the Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram on April 14, 2014. 

The senior special adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs, Dr Doyin Okupe speaking to CNN said the Federal Government is not resting on its oars as more than 1,000 troops are on their way to Borno State.

Okupe further revealed that President Jonathan has accepted United States of America President Obama’s offer to assist in rescuing the missing girls.

He however lamented the shortage of manpower in the fight against terrorism but insisted that the government is doing all within its power to see to the rescue and safe return of the Chibok schoolgirls.

Meanwhile, the minister of information, Labaran Maku has revealed that some suspects have been arrested in connection with the Nyanya bomb blast and are currently helping in the investigations.
