The convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) group, Oby Ezekwesili, has said the Sambisa forest is 18 times as large as Lagos State.
Tweeting via her Twitter account on Monday, she spoke about the massive expanse of land the dreaded Boko Haram sect had been occupying for years.
“Dreaded Sambisa is massive. 60,000 square kilometers. 18 times the size of Lagos State! All of Lagos is 3,345square km. #BBOG” Ezekwesili wrote.
The BBOG delegation also included the spokesperson of the Chibok community, Dr Manasseh Allen, Aisha Yusuf and Ibrahim Usman.
Oby Ezekwesili who is currently on a tour with four other members of the group also hinted that that the Nigerian Army has not captured Sambisa Forest in Borno State as widely held.
