Sambisa Is Massive, Its 18 Times The Size Of Lagos – Oby Ezekwesili

Co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls group, Oby Ezekwesili, says Sambisa Forest, the hideout of the Boko Haram, is 18 times the size of Lagos state, Nigeria’s commercial capital.

Ezekwesili, who went on a tour of Sambisa with the Nigerian Airforce (NAF), said the forest is a vast expanse of land, and more has to be done to capturing the whole forest.

“Dreaded Sambisa is massive. Sixty thousand square kilometers. Eighteen times the size of Lagos State! All of Lagos is 3,345 square km,”

she wrote on Twitter:

“Apparently, the Sambisa ‘general area’ as it’s called is some 85% of entire size of Borno State.”
