The Defence Headquarters has dismissed widespread reports that most of the abducted Chibok girls, have been impregnated by their captors, Boko Haram insurgents.
A recent report had quoted an escaped female captive of Boko Haram, as saying that some of the Chibok girls have had babies for the insurgents while some are pregnant.
However, on Sunday, Acting Director, Defence Information, Col. Rabe Abubakar, said the report was misleading and spurious.
“The attention of the Defence Headquarters has been drawn to the publication in a national daily of Saturday, October 10, 2015, claiming that one of the Chibok girls, who escaped from terrorists’ captivity, was handed to the military post in Baga.”
“The spurious report by the national daily is not only misleading but is once again another unconscionable outing, as there is no iota of truth in its entirety, hence should be disregarded.
“In as much as the Nigerian military and other security agencies are working round the clock to secure the release of not only the Chibok girls but also other innocent citizens, who are held hostage by the terrorists, it will not give credence to misleading reports, which have no true source as we have repeatedly pledged to inform Nigerians on the true situation in our ongoing operations.”
