200 Abducted Schoolgirls Sighted

There are reports that 200 of the schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents have been sighted in southern Borno in seven buses awaiting movement to an unknown destination.
Residents of Borno revealed that the girls were sighted in the Gwoza-Bama axis.
Confirming this development to journalists in Maiduguri, a civil rights activist, Dr. Peregrino Brimah said residents of the border town between Nigeria and Cameroon involved in the search for the girls confirmed seeing the schoolgirls huddled together inside seven buses awaiting movement to an unknown destination.
The activist called on the security agencies to go in pursuit of the insurgents before the girls were taken out of the country. He also called on President Goodluck Jonathan to approve immediately the formal request of thousands of youths in the area to carry arms to confront the insurgents.
Meanwhile, Prophet T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Ikotun southwest Nigeria, has cautioned the military against an all out attack on the sect to free the abducted girls. He said this was necessary to prevent the girls from being harmed.
The popular cleric on Sunday during his sermon, urged the security agents to take it easy and abstain from deploying full force in their attempt to rescue the girls.
“I want to tell our security men that they should take it easy. They should not go with full force because it will bounce back on these children. Let us be prayerful and at the same time be tactical and strategic, so that they will not harm our dear schoolgirls. Their captors are in a place where they cannot move forward or backward. Confrontation is dangerous. The security men should be very careful in their strategy and approach,” he stated.
The schoolgirls were abducted on 14 April in their hostel at Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State by Boko Haram members dressed in army uniforms and taken to their stronghold in the Sambisa forest. About fourty of the girls escaped days after the incident.
