Tillerson was in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital yesterday, where he pledged the support of the US in securing the quick release of the Dapchi and remaining Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists.

He was initially slated to spend the night in the Nigerian capital but his visit was cut short, owing to what his spokesman said were pressing engagements in Washington D.C.
