As global outcry continues unabated over the abduction of 276 school girls in Chibok, Borno State, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has continued its intense surveillance of the entire North East region of the country.
Defence Spokesperson Maj. Gen. Chris Olukolade who revealed this at the daily media briefing by the National Information Centre, Abuja said already, discussions and collaborations are on-going between Nigeria and the countries offering assistance in the search for the missing girls.
Dousing insinuations that Nigerians troops were not engaged in search for the girls, the Centre displayed photographs showing members of the armed forces in various locations in the region.
Earlier, Coordinator of the Centre, Mr. Mike Omeri who is Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA) had disclosed that there were active land and air patrols by troops within the North East region and that Nigeria and her partners were in constant touch with each other on the issue.
Omeri expressed official suspicion that the threat letter allegedly sent to a secondary school in Makurdi about Boko Haram terrorists was a handiwork of mischief makers and probably not from the sect.
