National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd), has visited the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, for an on-the-ground assessment.

He went along with the service chiefs: Air Chief Marshal AS Badeh (defence), Major Gen. Kenneth Minimah (army), Rear Admiral Usman Jibrin (navy) and Air Vice Marshall Adesola Amosu (air force).

The Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar, was also in the team.

The visit was unannounced but was made public after their return to Abuja by Defence spokesman, Maj. General Chris Olukolade.

Olukolade said the team was conducted round the school by the Vice Principal Administration, Bulama Modu.

They inspected burnt classrooms, dormitories and the laboratory.

Badeh declined to give the actual figure of the missing girls to the media, who were kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents on April 15.

He said every single life is important to the nation and no effort will be spared in finding the girls.

He appealed to the members of the immediate community and the general public to provide security agencies with useful information that will lead to the rescue of the girls, Olukolade said in his statement.

President Goodluck Jonathan has given the security agencies the marching order to find the girls.

Nigeria is also receiving international co-operation in its effort to locate the girls.
