Govt vows to rescue abducted Chibok students


The Federal Government of Nigeria has assured Nigerians that it will do everything possible to rescue students abducted in Chibok community, Borno state by the Boko Haram sect.


Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro stated the government’s commitment yesterday while in audience with the United Kingdom (U.K) head of delegation and Co-chair, Mr. Hugh Ind.


“The government is worried about this issue of terrorism that resulted in the kidnapping of secondary school girls. We know what the parents are passing through and we will do whatever it takes to bring them home.


“The government will not relent and will not be distracted by the activities of terrorist in its desire to create an enabling environment to attract foreign investors in the country,” he assured.


It would be recalled that the Boko Haram sect had earlier in the month abducted about 200 girls from Chibok community in Borno state.


While commending the U.K for suspension of visa bond, the Minister said the two countries have come a long way and that the UK has always assisted Nigeria to curb insecurity and other issues.


Earlier, Ind said his office was committed to tackling issues of counter terrorism, migration and organized crime.


He added that the office will assist Nigeria in those areas, including talking to people on the need to live in peace.
