President Goodluck Jonathan says he believes the hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram last month are still in Nigeria and not trafficked across the border into Cameroon and Chad.
“There are stories that they have moved them outside of the country,” Jonathan says, according to Reuters. “But if they move that number of girls to Cameroon, people will see, so I believe they are still in Nigeria.”
“We are also working with the experts that will use remote sensors to see [the insurgents] wherever they are. So that basically says they are within the Sambisa area,” Jonathan adds.
