Retired General, Carter Ham, who until last year led the U.S. African Command, has said that there is still a chance to help to free over 200 abducted girls in Chibok, Borno state, and return them to their families.
General Ham’s former command will be part of the U.S. effort to search for the missing schoolgirls, who were kidnapped three weeks ago by Boko Haram. The group’s leader said this week that he plans to sell them.
General Ham said today that he suspected that some of the girls may have already been sent to other countries, saying: “that’ll be a difficult challenge,”
“But we have surveillance platforms, signals intelligence and other capabilities that would be helpful.”
