Ahmad Salkida, Dubai-based Nigerian journalist known for having access to the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents, insists that 98 of 113 Chibok schoolgirls in captivity have died.
Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, had said the facts available to the government indicated that all the remaining girls in Boko Haram captivity were alive.
Reacting, Salkida, in a tweet on Sunday, challenged the government to provide video evidence that the schoolgirls are still alive.
What I don't get is, did Govt provide life saving drugs, bulletproof vests and bunkers for the #Chibokgirls in captivity amidst harsh conditions, daily crossfires and bombardments? I threw a challenge, Govt or the insurgents can only refute me with a proof of life video. https://t.co/nj4L7THZje
