Chibok gilrs-15

United States government said, yesterday, that it provided Nigeria every information and intelligence needed to rescue the over 200 missing girls abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State on April 14, 2014.

The US government spoke through its Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Samantha Jane Power.

Fielding questions from State House Correspondents after a private meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Power, who was on a tour of the troubled spots in the North East of Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad, stated that the US would not rest until the girls were rescued.

Power added that the recent video was actually a proof that the girls were still alive and to essentially enable the families of the girls engage with the government.

“The issue of the Chibok girls and other adaptations is of huge priority to the U.S. And it was the issue I discussed at length with President Buhari today,” Power said.

“We had moved to provide the information and intelligence needed to the Nigerian authorities. We have in recent months been able to allocate additional information sharing platforms and additional surveillance to aid the fight against Boko Haram.

“We will not rest. We will continue to deepen our partnership and be more effective without partners on the ground.

“We are determined to support Nigeria and other neighboring countries’ efforts to secure more rescues of abducted people and releases in the days and weeks ahead.

“What we talked about was the importance of pursuing every need related to the Chibok girls and making sure we have a mechanism whereby parents and family members who have been abducted by Boko Haram can be given information, whereby videos can be examined and family members offer their feedbacks on their impression on the videos to have a process by which family of those who are missing work more constructively with the government and, indeed, with those involved in the operations in trying to rescue the girls.

“So that was the nature of our discussion with the President. The recent video was one part of our discussion and the larger puzzle that we need to be unraveled,” Power said.

Meanwhile, the federal government has reiterated its commitment to finding the girls, saying it remained its priority.
