While the world awaits the end to the Chibok drama, Coordinator of National Information Center, Mike Omeri says security agents are not far away from finding the abducted school girls.
It could be recalled that in April 2014, terror group Boko Haram kidnapped well over 200 girls from a school in Chibok area of Borno state, prompting worldwide outcry. Several well meaning international governments, United States of America, China and France inclusive have joined in the effort to rescue the girls from their captors.
While briefing reporters in Abuja on Monday, July 7, 2014, Mike Omeri, the Coordinator, National Information Centre, affirmed that the security agents are currently working on leads that would lead to the rescue of the abducted schoolgirls soon.
Omeri said that security agencies were working on leads that would soon lead to the rescue of the school girls from Islamist militant sect Boko Haram.
He said that the arrest of chief intelligence operative of Boko Haram, has helped security get closer to finding the girls.
He also cautioned landlords to track identities of their tenants, as some of the members of the group will be moving from the north to other parts.
On viral reports of the 60 abducted girls and women who escaped from the Boko Haram hideout, Omeri said he cannot confirm the story but he has reached out to officials in Borno to deliver the right information.
