The Federal Government on Wednesday said “all options’’, including negotiation, are open to free the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.
The Coordinator of the National Information Centre, Mr Mike Omeri, made this known when he gave an update on the security operations in the North-East at a joint news conference in Abuja.
“The Federal Government is totally committed and focused towards ensuring that our beloved children, kidnapped girls, are returned safe and sound.
“Therefore, as we said before, all options in line with international best practices are open in this case,’’ Omeri said.
He said government had distributed relief materials to communities affected by the insurgency in the North-East as well as Jos through the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
According to him, efforts are ongoing to reach victims also affected by the insurgency in other states.
Omeri appealed to members of the public, spirited individuals and corporate organisations, to come to the aid of victims of the insurgency through NEMA. [NAN]
