The Minister of Interior, Gen. Bello Dambazau at the weekend expressed hope that the abducted Chibok school girls will be rescued.
The minister said this during an interview with journalists at the palace of the Lagos Monarch, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu where he went on a courtesy visit.
According to him, the police and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) were collaborating with the military in the efforts to rescue the abducted girls.
“Though the rescue of the Chibok girls is not within my jurisdiction, as a parent, I would like to see the Chibok girls back home. It is unfortunate that a lot of time was wasted in the past, but Nigerians should not lose hope on the Chibok girls as the present government is working assiduously to bring the girls home.
“The police and the Civil Defence Corps are also working with the army towards rescuing the girls and providing adequate security to all Nigerians,” Dambazau said.
Speaking earlier, Dambazau said he was at the palace to solicit the monarch’s support for agencies under his watch in Lagos.
