Top Military Official Says Girls Found


On May 26, Nigeria’s defense chief Air Marshal Alex Barde announced that the country’s military has found the abducted schoolgirls but cannot use force to rescue them. “We can't go and kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back,” he said at a demonstration in Abuja. Some have voiced skepticism of this update, pointing to the military’s previous false claims about the abduction.
