Earlier this week, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, the Chief of Defence Staff, stated that the military knew the location of the over 200 abducted Chibok school girls.
However, yesterday, the United States revealed that there is no information to support the Nigerian military’s claims, Vanguard reports.
Jen Psaki, spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department said, “we don’t have independent information from the United States to support that statement. We, as a matter of policy and for the girls’ safety and well being, would not discuss publicly this sort of information regardless.”
Also, some U.S. and European security officials who reportedly spoke on condition of anonymity said “they had no credible information on the location of the girls and were skeptical that the Nigerian government knew where they were.”
