The National Security Adviser, retired Col. Sambo Dasuki, in company of service chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police on Thursday visited Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state, where 276 girls were captured by Boko Haram gunmen on 14 April.
Maj.-Gen. Chris Olukolade, Director of Defence Information, said the visit, 23 days after the abduction, was in continuation of the ongoing effort to rescue the girls.
Olukolade stated that the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, noted that every single life is important to the nation.
Olukolade reported the CDS as saying no effort would be spared at finding the girls.
“He appealed to the members of the immediate community and the general public to provide security agencies with useful information that will lead to the rescue of the girls.
The team was conducted round the school by the Vice Principal Administration, Bulama Modu.
Burnt classrooms, dormitories and laboratories were inspected by the team, Olukolade stated.
The statement said that the team has since returned to Abuja.
