0 0

The #BringBackOurGirls group has demanded for what it called a mid-term report of the six-weeks military operations against Boko Haram insurgents in north-east.

It asked the military authorities to publish number of terrorists killed, number of those captured alive, number of fallen troops and those injured.

The group at its sitout on Sunday in Abuja, also demanded for names of all liberated towns, villages and local governments, as well as the communities that residents could return to and those that are safe for habitation.

The movement in a statement said it looked forward to the victory of the military and the Multi-National Joint Task Force, noting that it was hopeful that the military would succeed in bringing back the Chibok school girls.

The statement read in part, “Can the Federal Government and the military high command provide a comprehensive mid-term report of the six-weeks operation that details the following: number and names of all liberated towns, villages and local governments.

“What communities precisely have been liberated, and the names; Liberated territories that residents are able to return to as well as those that are not safe for habitation. Number and names of territories that are yet to be liberated.

“The number of terrorists killed; number of terrorists captured alive; number of our fallen troops and those injured; the status of our regional and collaborations. Can there be more audio-visuals of the progress at the war front?”

The group asked the Federal Government to respond to the perception that it may have mismanaged the support that several countries like the United Kingdom and the United States offered at the beginning of the search to rescue the Chibok girls in May,2014.

The BBOG also challenged the British Government and other countries which offered support to the FG to demonstrate a minimum standard of accountability, by providing substantial update of the results they have accomplished.
