The military disclosed, yesterday, said their major offensive to rescue the remaining 190 abducted students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State was yielding fruit, as they have moved closer to the abductors’ den.

The Director of Defence Information, Maj.-Gen. Chris Olukolade, who spoke with newsmen, yesterday, on the sideline of media tour of military operations in Maiduguri, said the military was satisfied with the ongoing operations in Borno.

According to him, the troops had sustained momentum in terms of the offensive against the terrorists, notwithstanding the reactions from the insurgents.

“The bases we visited are part of the responses to the terrorist offensive and that is an achievement; the military had moved close to where the insurgents are. It shows that the military had taken over the land. The morale of the soldiers was high, and we are expecting to see more successes from the troops”.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), who was on the media tour, reports that the group visited military camps in and around Maiduguri.

The group visited 7 Division Headquarters of the Nigerian Army, 7 Division Garrison, military check points in and around Maiduguri, among others. At the camp in the outskirts of Bulanbuli, the soldiers were seen carrying out their duties as expected.

Maj.-Gen. Ahmed Mohammed, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, who was also on the tour of the formations, told the troops that the Federal Government was happy with their operations. “That is why we are here to say a big thank you and to convey the appreciation of the whole country. I wish to say big thanks for your courage and dedication.”, he said

The journalists were also taken on night patrols by the troops which lasted from 9 p. m. to 12.30 a.m. around Maiduguri and its environ. The essence of the tour, according to Olukolade, is to have a first-hand information on the operations of the troops.

Senior military officers from the Army and the Air Force had earlier held a strategic meeting at Army headquarters in Abuja to formulate strategies on how to rescue the abducted girls.

Major General Ahmed Mohammed was summoned to Abuja to be part of the strategic meeting.
