Federal Government Launches Fresh Bid To Rescue Chibok Girls

The Federal Government says it has launched a fresh bid to rescue the Chibok schoolgirls, disclosing that previous efforts to rescue the girls were frustrated by infighting among Boko Haram terrorists and middle men, who ‎exploited the process for pecuniary gains. The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made this known at a media briefing in Abuja on Friday.

The schoolgirls were abducted from Government Secondary School in Chibok by Boko Haram insurgents in 2014. Ever since, a pressure group, #BringBackOurGirls, BBOG group has been formed, piling pressure on the government to do more in seeing to the safe return of the missing girls.
