Doyin Okupe, a senior official of the Nigerian government has forclosed a time limit to when the now famous Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram sect would be released. Speaking on a Channels Television programme Sunrise Daily, Okupe said there is no time limit for the rescue of the girls abducted from their school’s dormitories over six months ago. “There is no time limit for returning the girls alive,” Mr. Okupe said. “The issue of the Chibok girls is a national tragedy that must be borne with fortitude. Government has not given up on finding and rescuing the girls” he added. The senior spokesman to President Goodluck Jonathan admitted the Chibok girls’ case is a “major thorn in the flesh of this administration.” He assured that the Jonathan government would rescued the girl if it were possible “yesterday”. Okupe said the issue required extreme caution to avoid losing the girls. “Any mistake will lead to their death. That is why we (the government) are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea,” he said. President Jonathan’s visit to Chadian President Idriss Deby, Okupe said, showed the extent the government would go to have the girls back. He stated that the Nigerian military are better organised and recorded a streak of victories in Mubi, Baga, and Gwoza, among territories hitherto captured by the terrorists.
