The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, had conducted members of the BBOG group around the erstwhile terrorists enclave in Northeast Nigeria in order for them to witness first hand the efforts the Nigerian military is putting in to secure the release of all Boko Haram abductees.

Giving her account on return from the trip, leader of the group, Oby Ezekwesili, agreed that it is possible that the remaining abducted girls from Chibok are still within the forest despite the Nigerian military’s capture of the dreaded terrorists base, camp zero, in December.

Responding to questions on their level of satisfaction on the efforts to find the abducted school girls, the BBOG group said that the trip has afforded them the opportunity to validate their demand that military dis-empowerment cannot win the war on terror, ChannelsTV reports.

The convener of the group, Oby Ezekwesili, added that the group is more empowered to demand that any person who has been indicted for embezzlement of resources meant to prosecute the war on terror be prosecuted and brought to book.

Concise news recall that the trial of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki, who was accused of misappropriating $2.2bn allocated for procuring arms to fight boko haram insurgents, will continue on Jan 25.

Former president Goodluck Jonathan had received heavy knocks for saying that he doesn’t believe that his former NSA missapropriated $2.2bn.
