NIGERIA-VIOLENCE-25-04-2014-12-04-38-650

It’s been over a month since over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped from their Chibok village school. Now a Nigerian official believes that he knows the whereabouts of the girls, but are hesitant to implement a rescue.

According to CNN, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh says the nation’s military will not use force to try to rescue them.

“We want our girls back. I can tell you that our military can and will do it, but where they are held, can we go there with force?” Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh said, a News Agency of Nigeria, a state-run news service reports. “Nobody should say Nigerian military does not know what it is doing; we can’t kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back.”

Badeh continued: “The good news for the parents of the girls is that we know where they are, but we cannot tell you.

“We cannot come and tell you the military secret, just leave us alone, we are working to get the girls back,” Badeh reportedly said.

Pentagon spokesman Adm. John Kirby told CNN that U.S. officials “were not able to confirm the report.”

Boko Haram, the group responsible for the kidnappings, have released videos condemning the education of Nigerians girls, and also said the girls would be sold as wives to Boko Haram members for $12 USD.

    Is it a genius idea to announce it, aren’t they putting the girls In more danger by doing so? SMDH!!

      I was thinking the same thing. I was also annoyed at the fact that there was a list circulating on the internet of the girls’ first AND last names.

    I read somewhere that the government almost signed off on a deal to release 100 terrorists for fifty girls, but backed out. I don’t blame them for not taking that deal. Boko Haram knows that if they let those girls go there will nothing stopping the Nigerian military, or some other military from blasting them straight to hell.
