Olukolade Speaks On Why Names Of Rescued Victims Can Not Be Revealed Now

After rescuing 200 girls and 93 women on Tuesday from Sambisa forest and rescuing another 160 yesterday, the Defence authorities have said they will not be able to confirm whether the about 453 females rescued by the Special Forces in the Sambisa Forest on Tuesday and Wednesday are from Chibok or not without a comprehensive profiling of the distressed persons.

The Director, Defence Information, Maj. Gen. Chris Olukolade, also explained further during a press conference in Abuja today. Continue below…

“The true identity of some of the rescued women and girls are yet to be ascertained. At the moment, what is uppermost and of priority is their movement to a conducive place, where they are now undergoing thorough profiling to verify their true identity; where they come from, how they found themselves in the forest, etc.

“Additional number of persons is still being recovered from the forest. Until such comprehensive profiling is done, nobody can confirm whether they are among the Chibok girls or not.

“Whoever they may be, the important thing is that Nigerians, held captive under very severe and inhuman condition, have been freed by our gallant troops. The joy and sense of hope being expressed by many Nigerians on hearing about the rescue operation is therefore understandable.

“We would like to reassure them that the momentum of this operation will be sustained until that Sambisa Forest is comprehensively cleaned out and all Nigerians held captive within the bowels of the forest are rescued.  There is great hope for the recovery of more hostages of the terrorists,” he said.

He also encourages boko haram insurgents to surrender because Sambisa forest will no longer be safe for them.
