Abuja – At least 200 schoolgirls abducted in north-east Nigeria by the radical Islamist group Boko Haram have been seen by witnesses being moved in buses to an unknown location, the news website Naij.com reported on Monday.
The girls were seen on seven buses in Bornu state, where they were kidnapped from their boarding school in the town of Chibok on 14 April.
The army said on Sunday that it had identified the camps where the girls were being held, but was being cautious about initiating an offensive against the kidnappers for fear of injuring the detainees.
Boko Haram, which wants to create an Islamist state, is responsible for thousands of deaths since it began its insurgency in 2009.
