Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has described as untrue a media report that a runaway Chibok girl recently handed over to the military revealed that other girls were alive and many impregnated by Boko Haram terrorists.
A statement yesterday by Defence spokesman, Colonel Rabe Abubakar said the report which claimed one of the Chibok girls who escaped from terrorist captivity and handed to the military post in Baga, Borno State was misleading.
He said as much as the military is working to rescue not only the Chibok girls but others held captive by the terrorists, it will not give in to misleading reports.
Abubakar added that: “the search for abducted Chibok school girls and the rescue of other Nigerians in hostage has never relapse as could be attested to in recent times where hundreds of women and children were rescued by the military through its coordinated operations.”
He further said the military would continue to sustain the operation until the entire North East is cleared of all terrorists and miscreants.
“We wish to once again remind journalists to seek clarifications on any issue relating to military operations and other national sensitive matters before going to press,” the DHQ stated.
