The Nigerian military has refuted reports that some Chibok girls were recently rescued.
The denial was made public by the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Maj.-Gen. Lucky Irabor.
Irabor denied the claim at an interaction with newsmen during his operational visit to the Theatre Command of Operation Lafiya Dole in Maiduguri on Sunday.
He said Chibok girls were not in the Military’s custody.
The CDS, who was accompanied by the Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru; Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Isiaka Amao, and Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Awwal Gambo, said he was in the Theatre to appraise the security situations and get briefing from the officers on ground.
