Worthy Christian News » Missing Nigerian Schoolgirls Found?

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

ABUJA (Worthy News)– U.S. aerial imagery over northeastern Nigeria has recently detected large groups of girls being held in remote locations, raising hopes they are from the group of young women abducted by Boko Haram from a boarding school back on April 14, according to International Christian Concern.

The surveillance suggests that at least some of the 219 schoolgirls are being used as bargaining chips for the release of Haram prisoners.

Facing re-election in February, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan is under intense political pressure to secure the girls' release. But Goodluck's government has ruled out either a rescue operation, or a prisoner swap.
