Nigerian Government yesterday [April 8] denied knowledge of a report, which claimed that the over 200 school girls kidnapped from Chibok community by members of Boko Haram sect about one year ago have been killed. The Coordinator of National Information Centre (NIC), Mr. Mike Omeri, during a security briefing yesterday in Abuja, maintained that all hope on rescuing the girls alive was not lost yet.

He urged Nigerians to be hopeful as recovery of the captured towns and villages from Boko Haram were still ongoing, urging people to disregard speculations. Omeri said: “The search for Chibok girls continues and that is why even with capture of Bama and the rest, security and military have never relent. And until it is concluded, we cannot begin to believe speculation.

“I think the one year anniversary is next week, and we hope to give a comprehensive report on what we know so far, and how far the searching has gone. So, the assurance I will give you is that everywhere is being combed and whatever element we found will be revealed to appropriate authority, and nobody is going to keep anything secret.”

He urged Nigerians to be vigilant during the Saturday governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections, adding that military would be ready to subdue any form of attack from any terror group.

Omeri assured that the Nigerian military would be on ground in troubled states to ensure a peaceful election.

He urged the citizens, especially those in the area where the military has been battling the Boko Haram, to remain calm and vigilant.
