Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed on Tuesday said on Channels TV that the over 200 missing Chibok Girls is restraining the Nigerian Army from making further advance on Sambisa forest in Borno state.

He said, ”we are a bit constrained. I know that some countries have set certain fire around the Sambisa forest in order to smoke out the Boko Haram insurgents but we are being careful because we are still looking for the Chibok girls and we do not want unnecessary collateral casualties. I know that many of our neighbours like Mali and Niger have employed certain procedures because of our major objective that we are still looking for the Chibok girls, so in some parts of Sambisa forest, we cannot adopt such drastic approaches.”
