"We Know Where The Abducted Chibok Girls Are" - Presidency Confirms Army Report

Following claims by the Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh that the Nigerian Army has discovered the location of the missing Chibok girls, the Presidency yesterday confirmed the reports.
This was disclosed yesterday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe during an interview with American news station, CNN.
Okupe said:

    “As an insider; I am saying that the location of the Chibok schoolgirls is now known and President Goodluck Jonathan is doing everything possible to ensure their safe return”

The Tribune reports:

    The confirmation came a week after the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, disclosed that the Nigerian military had discovered the whereabouts of the schoolgirls.

    Also, a competent source within the presidency debunked the rumour that President
    Goodluck Jonathan was angry with the CDS over the revelation to the effect that the Nigerian military had discovered the whereabouts of the girls.
    The source further said that the president was not unmindful of the effect of the positive development on the morale of the Nigerian military.
    According to the source, “if the Americans had made the breakthrough, that would have been the end of the Nigerian military and the president, as the Commander-in-Chief, knows that at all times, he must show and have confidence in the capacity and competence of his troops.”
    Dr Okupe assured the nation and the international community that very soon, the nation’s security forces would secure the release of the abducted girls and reunite them with their parents.
