President Goodluck Jonathan has said that the Boko Haram insurgents have not killed the over 200 abducted schoolgirls of Government Secondary School Chibok, Borno State.
The president said this early this morning while featuring on an AIT programme tagged Kakaki which was monitored by our correspondent.
"The good news is that the insurgents have not killed them".

The president also assured that Adamawa and Yobe States would be completely liberated from the terrorist group before next week.
He, however, admitted that his government initially underestimated the capacity of the Boko Haram sect.
"At the beginning, we didn't really estimate the capacity of Boko Haram", he said.
Jonathan also said that Nigeria had got between 60 and 65 percent of what was needed to prosecute the war against terrorism.
The president also disclosed that his administration would completely privatise the nation's refineries to ensure efficiency in the oil sector.
While assuring of his government's commitment to resolving the current fuel scarcity, he said the country had to start refining her crude.
He also dismissed the insinuation that the recent reduction of fuel pump price from N97 to N87 was politically motivated, saying it was necessitated by the decline in the global oil price.
He said Nigeria would stabilise in so many sectors in the next four years if he is re-elected.
