Governor of Borno state

By Olusegun Emmanuel, Abuja.

The Governor of Borno State, Mr. Kashim Shetima, said he has information on the whereabouts of about 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by the Boko Haram sect.

Shettima, according to the BBC, said he had passed reports on the sightings of the girls to the military for verification.

The governor added that he did not think the girls had been taken across the border to Chad or Cameroon.

Meanwhile, President Jonathan said an Israeli counter-terrorism team would arrive in Nigeria to help in searching for the schoolgirls, who were abducted last month in Borno State.
