On the eve of the safe rescue of eighty members of the Chibok girls, the United States and British governments are issuing high-sounding warnings about the Boko Haram extremist group.
The two countries have issued warnings to foreigners in northeast Nigeria that the terrorist group is presently planning to kidnap them in further exchange fo their incarcerated members.
Yesterday, Elombah.com had reported that at least 80 of the school girls abducted from Chibok Community by Boko Haram in Borno state, northeast Nigeria have been freed.
The girls, according to government sources, were released after negotiation with the militants.
In fact, as at press time of this article, the released girls are being hosted in the Presidential villa, Abuja.
However, the British warning says the extremists are targeting Western foreign workers in the Bama area of Borno state, close to the Cameroon border.
The Nigeria-based Boko Haram has been pushed out of strongholds by military efforts but continues to control parts of the country’s northeast.
That has challenged aid groups’ efforts to address a hunger crisis that the United Nations says has left 4.7 million people in urgent need of food aid.
Nigeria is part of what the U.N. has called the largest humanitarian crisis since the world body was founded in 1945.
The World Food Program has warned of aid cuts if more help doesn’t arrive.
