The Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans (CANAN) announces that it is happy to read about the news of almost 300 women and girls, and then of another 160 women and children rescued this week from the Sambisa forest in Northeast Nigeria where Boko Haram holed up for a long time.

CANAN is glad to know that after all the federal government is doing the needful by attacking the stronghold of the terrorists and liberating the women.

The group however requests that the government be more circumspect in the dissemination of the news considering the raw emotions of the families of abducted children and women.

Raising hope about the rescue without prompt clarity on the identities of those involved does damage to an already wounded psyche of the families and relatives of the victims. CANAN then urges for more caution and care in the management of these matters.

CANAN says that before the case of the Chibok girls seized global attention last year, it has been raising alarm about the abduction of some girls alongside several atrocities of Boko Haram.

Declaring that though there is no definite information whether the Chibok girls are among those already rescued yet, “we are encouraged that such a large number of girls, children, and women have been rescued and freed. We await more clearer details about the identities of those now rescued with the hope that more are on the way including the over 200 Chibok schoolgirls. Several reports in the media quoting diplomatic and intelligence sources have said the Chibok girls might have been kept at some point in Sambisa forest.

Hopefully, some of the rescued women might provide insight regarding the fate of others still under the bondage of the terrorists.  It is known for instance that between last year and now, at least 2000 women and girls, according to Amnesty International have been taken away from their families and communities by the despicable group of terrorists.
Pastor Laolu Akande, Executive Director, CANAN, declares would like to use this opportunity to encourage the Nigerian government and military to maintain the international force that has successfully turned the tide in the terror war and if possible get additional assistance and support from countries like the United States, France, Germany, Israel among others who have offered to assist.

We also want to encourage the United Nations system working through several of its agencies not to relent in pursuing more avenues to provide assistance to Nigeria and the neighboring countries where the terror activities have been rampart in the past several years.
