National Security Council (NSC), Monday, July 21, 2014 insisted that the location of over 200 abducted schoolgirls from Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State by Boko Haram is known by security agencies, but said that it is being careful not to endanger their lives.
It equally ordered that the registration of Nigerians in some states of the federation, should stop henceforth.
Director of State Security (SSS), Ita Ekpeyong disclosed this while fielding questions from State House correspondents, shortly after the National Security Council (NSC) meeting presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said “the issue of Chibok girls, government is making efforts. We know where they are but we don’t want to endanger their lives, that is the truth, we want to take it gradually and release them at the appropriate time. We know where they are, you can go to bed with that.”
On what transpired at the meeting, he said it was the war against Boko Haram, adding that efforts are being made by government to rescue the Chibok girls. He said the issue of deportation, registration of Nigerians in states of the federation, which he noted as even more potent than Boko Haram, were discussed by the council.
