The UK can offer "technical support" in the likes of surveillance, satellite photography and drones to the Nigerian Government in the hopes of finding the 276 schoolgirls kidnapped by militants, according to an expert.
Former SAS soldier Robin Horsfall told Good Morning Britain the Nigerian army had enough manpower to cope on its own, but that the UK could help look for the girls using communications technology.
He added: "But one of the greatest assets that they have suddenly got is an escaped hostage."
The Nigerian military has flown more than 300 sorties in the hunt for the abducted schoolgirls, a Major has told ITV News' Rageh Omaar.
A newly released video from Boko Haram reportedly shows the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.
The man who started a viral hashtag campaign in support of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls says it has forced the government to act.
