The Special Forces from the Army's 7th Division said they have sighted three camps where boko haram has been hiding the missing girls in the North of Kukawa at the Western corridors of the Lake Chad.

“It has been a most difficult but heroic breakthrough,” one senior military official said in Abuja.

Another senior commander from the Army’s 7th Division, the special military formation created to deal with terrorism in the Northeast supported the claims made by the first commander that they have made a wonderful discovery .

This breakthrough has come at a very integral moment where the Nigerian military has been severely criticised over her inability to recover the abducted girls since their kidnapping a month ago.

The abduction has triggered an international outrage, as the United States, United Kingdom, France and Israel, have provided intelligence and surveillance assistance to Nigeria.

Nigerian military officials coordinating the search and other officials in Abuja said Boko Haram insurgents split the girls into batches and held them at their camps in Madayi, Dogon Chuku and Meri, all around the Sector 3 operational division of the Nigerian military detachment confronting the group’s deadly campaign.

"there is a fourth camp at Kangarwa, also in Borno State" Another source informed News men. That claim could not be independently verified.

“Our team first sighted the girls on April 26 and we have been following their movement with the terrorists ever since,” one of our sources said.

“That’s why we just shake our heads when people insinuate that the military is lethargic in the search for the girls.”

The location of the abducted girls – north east of Kukawa – has no doubt opened a new insight into the logistic orientation of Boko Haram, which recently is accused of bombing Jos, killing not less than 118 people.

Will this discovery mean anything in the rescue of the girls since combatting them may put the girls in harms way? With this information out in public , won't Boko Haram restrategise, and relocate the girls?
