The Nigerian Army has concluded plans to storm Sambisa Forest with about four battalions this weekend to secure the abducted 234 students of the Government Girls’ Secondary School (GGSS), Chibok, Borno State.
A military source who disclosed the development last night added that a little more than a Brigade of the Nigerian Army had been moved to the forest and are taking positions in and around all the access routes into and outside the Sambisa forest where the girls have been confirmed to be holed up with their captors.
The source said, “Let me tell you that fighter jets of the Nigerian Air Force as well as police surveillance helicopters have been mobilised and are waiting for the command to begin the joint security operations for rescue efforts of the abducted schoolgirls.
“Due to the dangerous nature of the operation which will result in soldiers and security agencies encountering booby traps, land mines, ambush and other unknown traps from the side of the terrorists, Air Force fighter aircraft, helicopter gunships and Police surveillance helicopters would carry out round the clock missions to ensure the success of the operation.”
Speaking further, the top officer said that since the forest shares borders with towns in Adamawa, Yobe, Borno and Cameroon, the different battalions would each launch their offensive from these locations.
