Former vice president and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Atiku Abubakar has expressed elation at the news of the rescue of nearly 300 girls and women from the Sambisa forest by troops of the Nigerian military.
The former vice president said in a statement by his media office in Abuja on Wednesday that it was unacceptable that hundreds of women, girls and boys had been abducted by the insurgent group, Boko Haram, over the last couple of months.
“While we rejoice in the rescue of the women and girls yesterday, we urge that our military continues steadfastly in the operations until all abducted Nigerians have been rescued and territories recaptured,” Atiku said.
The Turaki Adamawa expressed his unwavering support to Nigeria’s military forces in its ongoing mission to restore peace and sovereignty.
