The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has denied reports hinting that it had located the missing Chibok girls.

The denial was made via a statement released by NAF spokesperson, Ayodele Famuyiwa over the weekend.

It reads:

“The attention of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has been drawn to a statement to the effect that the NAF has located the position of the Chibok girls.”

“Please let it be known that this statement is a misrepresentation of the interview that the NAF Director of Public Relations gave the Channels Television that was aired on Friday 12 February 2016.”

“The NAF is hereby making it categorically clear that in the said interview the Director made mention of the NAF’s ability to identify POSSIBLE LOCATION that the girls might be in.”

“Hence, the NAF wishes to categorically state that it has at no time identified the specific location of the Chibok girls.”

“However, it is working round the clock with surveillance aircraft covering the over 157,000 km2 area of the North East in order to identify the position of not only the Chibok girls but other Nigerians that might have been held captives.”

The over 200 girls were abducted on April 14, 2014, and most of them remain in captivity.
