Any moment from now, United States military officials will swing into action to join local officials in the search for nearly 300 school girls taken captive by the Islamist extremist group, Boko Haram, the US Secretary of State John Kerry, and the defence department, Pentagon, said.
“Our interagency team is hitting the ground in Nigeria now and they are going to be working … with President Goodluck Jonathan’s government to do everything that we possibly can to return these girls,” Mr. Kerry said early Friday.
The small team of seven will join advisers supporting local efforts to find the girls abducted over three weeks ago, U.S. Navy Rear Admiral, John Kirby, who serves as Pentagon press secretary, said according CNN.
Mr. Kerry said the US team, working with the Nigerian government, would do everything possible to free the girls and everything possible to stop the atrocities of Boko Haram.
