To facilitate the rescue of the over 200 abducted Chibok schoolgirls, Cameroon and Chad may have agreed to block routes in their territories used by Boko Haram, it was learnt yesterday.
Some of the routes, top security sources told The Nation, have been identified.
If the routes are blocked, the sect will be confined to its camps in Nigeria.
A military source, who spoke in confidence with our correspondent last night, said all those involved in the planned rescue of the girls have been holding strategy meetings.
The source said: “The pre-rescue plans have reached advanced stage and very soon, we expect tangible results.
“Cameroon and Chad troops have identified some camps and movement routes of Boko Haram. They want to block these routes in order to restrict the sect operations to Nigeria.
“With the blockade, Nigerian troops with neighboring countries’ forces and the foreign counterparts can move in to rescue the girls wherever they are located.
“We have located where the girls are but the priority now is to see the best way to get these girls out without casualties.
“We are strategising on how to ensure a successful rescue operation.”
