Nigeria Chibok Girls Seen With Boko Haram

More than 50 of the girls abducted by militant Islamists in Nigeria last year were seen alive three weeks ago, BBC quoted a woman as saying on Tuesday.
She saw the girls in the north-eastern Gwoza town before the Boko Haram militants were driven out of there by regional forces. Boko Haram sparked global outrage when it seized more than 219 girls from Chibok town a year ago.
The US, China and other foreign powers promised to help find the girls.
Boko Haram was believed to have turned Gwoza into its headquarters after it captured the town in August 2014.

  No Promise to Find Girls
Nigerian President-elect Muhammadu Buhari says in a statement that he can’t promise to find the 219 Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Islamic extremists one year ago.
He says their whereabouts are unknown and “We do not know if the Chibok girls can be rescued,” AP reported.
Activists are marking the anniversary of the mass abduction from a school in Chibok, a town in northeast Nigeria, with a change in their slogan from “Bring Back Our Girls - Now and Alive” to “Never to be Forgotten.”
Pakistani activist Yousafzai Malala, meanwhile, promises the girls scholarships and says they must never lose hope. The 17-year-old Nobel Prize laureate chastises President Goodluck Jonathan and the international community, saying they haven’t done enough to rescue the girls. Boko Haram has kidnapped hundreds more since then.
