Nigerian girls’ location learned, military says

NIGERIA (BP) — The Nigerian military has learned the location of more than 200 kidnapped Nigerian Christian girls but has not managed to free the captives, Reuters News reported, while Boko Haram continues to slaughter Christians. Nigerian Air Marshal Alex Badeh cautioned May 26 that using military force might further endanger the teenagers, Reuters said, while Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has refused Boko Haram’s offer to free the girls in exchange for Nigeria’s release of imprisoned Boko Haram terrorists numbering about 4,000. Since Boko Haram kidnapped about 275 girls April 14, the terrorists have taken another 10 or so Christian girls and killed at least 470 civilians including Christians, Reuters reported.
