What Will Happen Before We Say That We Have Defeated Boko Haram – Buhari Reveals

UNTIL all the abducted Chibok girls have been rescued, the war against Boko Haram cannot be declared won, President Muhammadu Buhari said.

On April 14, 2014, 276 girls were abducted from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno. Out of that number 81 have regained freedom, while 195 are still in capacity.

“I have always said that we cannot consider the war against insurgency to be won until the remaining Chibok girls are found and delivered to their parents,” the president said on Saturday during the grand finale of the 53rd anniversary of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) in Makurdi, Benue State, where he was represented by the minister of defence, Mansur Dan-Ali.

“We must realise that the NAF has played some crucial roles in the counter-insurgency efforts in the northeast. I urge the air men and officers to consolidate on their efforts and protect our national security,” he said.

“And the government is fully committed to fulfilling this objective as soon as possible. Accordingly, the two new Russian fighter helicopters, which are being inducted into the NAF inventory today (Saturday), is to enhance the search for these girls, and the other abductees of the insurgents.”

He urged the air force to use the fighter helicopters to intensify its search for the girls and other hostages of the insurgents.

“Since its establishement in 1964, the air force has lived up to the deployment of air power to defend the territorial sovereignty of the country, and we have been able to rescue most of the towns and villages, hitherto violated by the Boko Haram insurgents,” he added.
