CHIBOK UPDATE: NIgerian Army Retracts Statement, Says Missing Girls Still In Captivity

Nigeria's military has retracted its statement that some of the schoolgirls abducted from Chibok town in April by Islamist militants had been freed.

Army spokesman Brig Gen Chris Olukolade told the BBC there were girls in military custody, but not those from Chibok as originally thought.

But less than 30 minutes after confirming the release, Mr. Olukolade has withdrawn his earlier statement.
