‘We Don’t Have Intelligence On The Whereabouts Of The Chibok Girls’ – Chief of Air Staff


Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, says the Nigerian Air Force does not have any intelligence that confirms whether the missing Chibok school girls are in Sambisa Forest or not. Over the years, it has been believed that the girls who were abducted on April 14th in their school dormitory are being held captive in Sambisa forest which is said to be the homebase of Boko Haram.

In an interactive session with journalists over the weekend, the Airforce chief says they have no intelligence on whether Chibok girls were in the Sambisa Forest or not

“Honestly we don’t. That is the truth of the matter. Even if you see women that are dressed in hijab, how are you sure they are women; that they are not men? It is only when you get there and they remove the hijab that you now realise that they are men and they have their rifles. There is no credible intelligence that will specifically tell you that these girls are here” he said
