Abuja - The Nigerian Army has expressed disappointment over the alleged politicisation of the rescue of some young women the Boko Haram sect abducted from Government Secondary School Chibok in 2014.
A breakthrough was reported with the rescue of two women who were among over 200 girls that were abducted.
The Army was reacting to some skepticism among some members of the Chibok community some girls had indeed been rescued.
Army spokesman, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, said the community had not been cooperative.

“The uncooperative attitude of a town union and a self-imposed voluntary group is detrimental to the sacrifices of the military that brought about these successes,” said Usman.
“It is more annoying when such comes from people that ought to know better. I am really disturbed by this politicization of the rescue. We are soldiers doing our duty to our country and humanity," Usman added.
Explaining why the community leaders were not working with the military, he believed they were yet to come to terms that there was “a new military”
and “sincerity of purpose” by the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“There are some people that are not happy with the progress because they were proven wrong.”
