Abducted Girls: Nigerians Harangue FG On Twitter

Even as government steps up its efforts to rescue the school girls abducted by suspected Boko Haram gunmen, Nigerians have take  to Twitter to debunk reports that some of them have been rescued.

On Wednesday, Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima, announced an offer of N50 million to anyone who provides useful information which leads to the rescue of the abducted students.

“I want to make a pledge of N50 million for any information—relevant, credible information that will lead to the rescue of these innocent girls,” he said.

But on Thursday, there were several reports that the Nigerian Army lied in its claims about the abducted, most of whom were teenagers.

Following the reports, Nigerians took to Twitter to express their doubts.

"If the government has really rescued the girls,what are their parents looking for in the forest?" @hayaatedatty tweeted.

@yemiblaque, tweeted, "Families of girls kidnapped from Borno school by suspected Boko Haram militants are accusing the Nigerian military of lying."

A few even had their own 'released' statistics.

"Only 14 out of 129 abducted Nigerian school girls seized by suspected Boko Haram are now free," @faithbalmonte.

Simillarly, ‏@AugustineOgaba tweeted, "Only 30 girls have been released by Boko Haram."

The Army was accused of lying by a number of people.

One of them, ‏@abubaqr07, wrote, ""JTF told us that the kidnapped school girls were freed, while they still missing in unknown place by Boko haram."

"#NigerianArmy com out n defend your reports o #BBCAFRICA says only ten girls escaped from boko haram after Tuesday kidnapp," a doubting @Oceano_maliq tweeted.

Meanwhile, concerned parents are reportedly scouring the bush that is between Chibok and Damboa in search of their lost wards.
