Speaking with journalists on phone, a top security operative in Borno State who craved anonymity, said the kidnappers are somewhere around Dikwa and Ngala border towns and that the Joint military Task Force (JTF) men were already on their trail.

"I can confirm based on intelligence that the kidnappers are currently in some bush enclaves between Dikwa and Gamboru-Ngala border village.

The Acting Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Rilwan Bala Musa , had revealed , Wednesday, that the nation's border was on red alert for the kidnapped French nationals and their captors who are believed to be heading for Nigeria.
