The United States government has said that there is no timeline in the search of Chibok girls, adding that the US troops will be in Nigeria until the kidnapped schoolgirls are found.
Spokesperson of the Department of State, Ms. Marie Harf, who made this known in a press conference addressed in Washington, DC yesterday said: “We’re certainly hopeful that we will track them down, and we’re committed to putting resources to doing that.”
Harf, who said that the US government would do whatever it requires to help the Nigerian government find the missing girls, explained that America’s counter-terrorism cooperation needed to be put in a proper context.
As the search for the abducted Chibok schoolgirls over two months ago continues, the United States President Barrack Obama, has said that his administration would fight against alleged human rights violations in Nigerian.
Obama, who spoke through Harf, further noted that the US had maintained a level of military cooperation with the Nigerians in keeping with relevant human rights legislation and human rights concerns.
Speaking on behalf of Obama, she said: “So we’ve been very open at times about our concern about Nigeria’s human rights record. Obviously, this is a key topic of conversation, especially when we’re talking about counter-terrorism.
The spokesperson further added, “And where we’re concerned about human rights issues in the Nigerian government or military, we take those very seriously. We’ve talked a lot about some of our congressional responsibilities when it comes to that issue.”
