The Nigerian Government on Friday, says it has launched a fresh bid to rescue the Chibok schoolgirls, disclosing that previous efforts to rescue the girls were frustrated by infighting among Boko Haram terrorists and middle men, who exploited the process for pecuniary gains.

The schoolgirls were abducted from Government Secondary School in Chibok by Boko Haram insurgents in 2014. Ever since, a pressure group, #BringBackOurGirls, BBOG group has been formed, piling pressure on the government to do more in seeing to the safe return of the missing girls.
