United States has authorized the deployment of 80 troops to Chad to
help Nigeria rescue over 200 schools kidnapped in Chibok by Boko Haram
militants. President Barak Obama is also clamouring for supports from
other nations so that the chibok girls can be freed from captivity.
In an official statement by the US White House today, the 80 troops
will support the operations of intelligence and surveillance over
northern Nigeria. The young girls who are supposed to be writing their
school certificate exams were kidnapped by militants of islamist group
known as Boko Haram. They are believed to be hiding in Sabisa forest in
Nigeria president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan said the Boko Haram would
soon be history. However, Jonathan’s statement was punctured as three
bomb explosions killed about 50 people yesterday.
