ABUJA, NIGERIA (NBC) - Residents in Nigeria's capital Tuesday were left wondering what will happen now after the military said they know the location of more than 200 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram, but didn't want to use force to free them.

It's been more than six weeks since the extremist militant group abducted the girls from their secondary school in the northeastern village of Chibok.

A businessman in Abuja Tuesday commended the military for doing their best, but said diplomacy was needed to secure the girls' safe return.

Another Abuja resident suggested the military's statement might have been a strategic farce.

Nigeria has accepted help from several nations, including the US and Britain, in their search for the girls.

Around 80 US troops have started arriving in neighboring chad to start a mission to help free the girls.
