A Ray of Hope…US Surveillance Flights Spot Chibok Girls

200+ Chibok Girls - May 2014 - BellaNaija.com 02
This news brings a ray hope in rescuing the Chibok girls abducted by Islamist militant sect Boko Haram in April 2014.

Today Thursday 7th August 2014 makes it the 115th day since the girls were kidnapped.

The Washington Post is reporting that recent U.S. surveillance flights over the northeastern part of Nigeria showed what appeared to be large group of girls being held together in remote locations.

According to the report, in early July the flights over the north east spotted a group of 60 to 70 girls held in an open field, and late last month, they spotted roughly 40 girls in a different field.

Spotting the girls proves they haven’t been sold into marriage as widely reported or forced into sex slavery.

Although US and Nigerian officials don’t have enough evidence to prove whether the two group of girls they saw are the same, they believe they are the Chibok girls.

“It’s unusual to find a large group of young women like that in an open space. We’re assuming they’re not a rock band of hippies out there camping.”, said a US defense official.

    This is great news! My heart aches every time I remember they are still missing but as always still hoping, still believing, that they would be home soon.

    Almost 4 months and these girls haven’t been accounted for. They’ve been scarred forever

    But if they’ve spotted these girls should this news not be state intelligence (or something) till the girls are rescued? We want the girls back home, not “spotted”.

    I am glad we all are smart enough to perceive this crookedness. Spotted spotted always, not brought back. After spotting, how long would it take Nigerian military to throw a net over that area and rescue.

    Boko Harram follows the news. When they see such they get defensive again and they know all what is happening. Talk the talk always not work the work. The US spotted Bin laden and carried out a covered operation, its only when he was killed that there was an announcement. Africans, we go sharpen our mouths the whole place.
