We will not rush to rescue abducted Chibok girls the military said while assuring Nigerians of victory over Boko Haram

The fight against insurgency is still in top gear by the Nigerian Army, who have recorded a commendable result in combating the extremist group in recent times. In a statement by the Acting Director, Defence Information, Military Headquarters, Abuja. Col.

The Nigerian Military says it will not be in a hurry to rescue the secondary schoolgirls in Chibok who were abducted in April 2014.
The Acting Director, Defence Information, Military Headquarters, Abuja, Col. Rabe Abubakar, who said this at a press conference in Lagos on Thursday, noted that while it was of utmost concern to the military to rescue the girls, the operation required demanded adequate patience and planning.

Abubakar added that recent efforts by the military in the rescue of over 200 women and children held captive by Boko Haram proved that the military was on course in recovering the girls.

He said, “The issue of the low morale of the Nigerian military men has now become a thing of the past. The operation to recover the Chibok girls is alive and still ongoing. We have continued to make rescue efforts, and we will do all within our powers to bring the girls.

“However, we will not rush to do this. It requires diligent intervention and a high-level operation to rescue the girls. In due time, every captive of Boko Haram will be released. A lot of achievements have been recorded recently, and this cannot be disconnected from the high morale of the army.

“We want to assure our citizens that soon, insurgency will be a thing of the past. But, it is not only about the military or the North-Eastern region. It is our collective duty to ensure that there is peace in the country.
