The #BringBackOurGirls took a new turn today when the Chief of defense staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh said they know where Boko Harams are keeping the 200+ girls in Nigeria but we can't use force to bring them back. Alex Badeh speaking to the members of the Citizens Initiative for Security Awareness in Abuja, Nigeria said that:
The good news for the parents of the girls is that we know where they are, but we cannot tell you. But where they are held, can we go there with force? We can't kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back.
He also stated that the Boko Haram groups are getting help from some people who plan to destabilize the country economy.
A military analyst, Major general James (RETD) had condemned the action of Alex Badeh as he said, the military is not supposed to be sharing such information on air as it might make it harder getting the girls. The Boko Haram members can change their location on strategy making sure that the military never gets to them. In his word, General James said:
Nigerian military level of incompetence is alarming
We hope that the girls are back soon and returned to their parents. May 27th is the children's day in Nigeria but a lot of Nigeria states have canceled its celebration to honor the girls.
