National Council Of State Promises Return Of Kidnapped Schoolgirls ‘Very Soon’

Almost three months since Islamic extremists, Boko Haram, abducted more than 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, Nigeria’s National Council of State has promised to deliver ‘some good news’ about the situation very soon.

It would be recalled that the schoolgirls were kidnapped inside the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, northeastern Nigeria on 14 April, 2014.

Since then, effort has made by the Nigerian federal government along with  assistance from the international communities to rescue the kidnapped girls from their abductors with not noticeable success.

However, it was gathered that the rescue of the girls was top of the agenda during a meeting of the National Council of State made up of past Nigerian presidents, state governors and leaders of parliament held on Tuesday, 8 July, 2014.
