The recent announcement by the Nigerian Military that it rescued 200 girls and 93 women from Zambiza Forest elicited varied reactions among Nigerias while some people are showering encomiums on the supposed gallant feat by the military, the Borno Elders’ Forum see things differently.
Speaking to Reuters, Bulama Mali Gubio,a spokesman for the Borno Elders’ Forum, said the elders are skeptical about this development.
In his words,” “If the soldiers have indeed rescued 200 girls and 93 women then they should show them. When Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram’s apparent leader kidnapped the Chibok girls he released video footage for everyone to see — this is the age of modern technology. Whether these are the same girls or not, people will be skeptical until they see their pictures on the news.”
