A Minna based legal practitioner, Taidi Jonathan on Sunday said the rescue of another Chibok school girl demonstrated the commitment of the Nigerian Army to national security.

He said that the effort of the security personnel has strengthened the hope of parents and all Nigerians that the ordeal of the schools girls and other hostages would soon be over.

With President Muhammadu Buhari’s political will to end the activities of insurgents in the country, the military personnel should do more to accomplish the task,” he added.

Jonathan challenged people in the North east to volunteer useful information to the military and other security agencies on the movement and locations of criminal elements, to help end the crisis.
