  6. Thousands of people has been rescued from Boko Haram captivity,yet the 200 chibok girls are yet to be rescued complete. It means we don't even know the number of Nigerians that are being abducted by the Boko Haram insurgents

    1. If the girls are found for good Will they not be disclosed. It like these guys want to the girls for dubious means.Time will tell.Book Haram cannot be stronger than the entire country.
