President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan said Sunday in Abuja that he was
very optimistic that with the entire international community deploying
its considerable military and intelligence-gathering skills and assets
in support of Nigeria’s efforts to find and rescue the abducted Chibok
girls, success will soon be achieved.

A statement released by the President's Senior Special Adviser on
Media, Dr. Reuben Abati claimed that the President said this while
speaking with the  Israeli Prime Minister, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu via

He said the Israeli leader called on Sunday afternoon to convey his
country’s sympathy and solidarity with Nigeria and offered
anti-terrorism assistance.

 President Jonathan welcomed the offer by Mr. Netanyahu to send a team
of Israeli counter-terrorism experts to assist in the ongoing search and
rescue operations for the school girls abducted from their school
dormitory on April 14 2014 in chibok, Borno state.

Abati said, "The President briefed Mr. Netanyahu on actions already
being taken by Nigeria’s armed forces and security agencies to locate
and rescue the girls, saying that Nigeria would be pleased to have
Israel’s globally-acknowledged anti-terrorism expertise deployed to
support its ongoing operations.

"Mr. Netanyahu who expressed Israel’s total condemnation of the mass
abductions, said that the team of experts from his country who will soon
arrive in Nigeria will work in collaboration with the teams from the
United States and  Britain who are already in the country and their
Nigerian counterparts to intensify the search for the girls.

"He reaffirmed Israel’s willingness to give the government and people
of Nigeria all possible support and assistance to overcome terrorism
and insecurity."
