Nigerian Air Force has said its attention has been drawn to reports that the NAF has located the position of the Chibok girls. It said the report was not exactly true as what it said was a possible location and not the specific location as reported in the media.

NAF Spokesman, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, in a statement Saturday night said the report was a misrepresentation of the interview he granted 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,? it said.


The statement stated that it had at no time identified the specific location of the Chibok girls.

Continuing, it said, ?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.

?Towards the realization of this goal, the NAF has from January 2016 till date using aircraft, ISR platforms such as ATR-42, B-350 and CH-3 UAV flown surveillance missions totaling over 346 hours consuming about 85,887 litres of Jet A-1 and 3,830 litres of Mogas costing N15,337,862:50 and $19,150:00 respectively.

?Therefore, whilst the specific position of the Chibok girls is not yet ascertained by the NAF, we have not folded our arms on the surveillance flights and will continue to use these flights to degrade the capacity of the terrorists and as soon as possible locate the position of the Chibok girls and other Nigerians that are under captivity.?
