Rescue of Chibok Schoolgirls Final of Liberation of Sambisa Forest

The Defence Headquarters has said troops of the Nigerian Army are close to rescuing the Chibok girls and other captives from the Sambisa forest.
The Director, Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Rabe Abubakar, revealed this on Sunday.
Abubakar explained that the operation in the Boko Haram enclave will only end, after the girls and others had been rescued.
He said: “We should allow for calm in this operation, which is still ongoing. We have yet to come to point zero. We have taken over the heart and the centre of Sambisa.
“The operation will culminate with Operation Rescue Finale which will end only when all the captives, including the Chibok girls have been rescued, and this would be soon.
“There are things we want to keep to ourselves for now. Everyone should understand that now that Sambisa is under the control of the military, there will be more rescues. We cannot say what will jeopardise the rescue operations of the troops.”
