Police denies abduction of 94 school girls by Boko Haram; school’s roll call says otherwise
The Nigeria police has denied reports that some students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, in Yobe state who were attacked by suspected Boko Haram terrorists had been abducted by the sect.
But the statement by the police boss in the state has been countered by a staff of the school who was an eye witness to the incident.
According to a teacher who did not want his name mentioned in print; “After the roll call, 610 out the total number of 704 students have returned. We are still searching for the remaining 94 students.
“We cannot say [if they have been abducted], because the insurgents went into the students hostel, and many of these students scaled the fence and escaped into the bushes.
“No one can tell if they were abducted or not. We are calling on parents to help the school update its list by reporting immediately their children arrived home safely”, he said.
