More than 100 Nigerian girls feared abducted by Boko Haram

More than 100 Nigerian girls feared abducted by Boko Haram

Mohammed said the President gave the directive immediately after he was informed of the development which left about 94 students still missing.

In a statement issued by the party's National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the party expressed worry over reports which claim that the students were declared missing after insurgents attacked the Girls Secondary School Dapchi, Yobe state on Tuesday.

"They ran out of foods and carted way foodstuffs from the school", the CP said.

Reports also emerged that the insurgents seized scores of girls at the school, although official confirmation of this had been hard.

The jihadists gained worldwide notoriety in April 2014 when they abducted 276 girls from their school in Chibok, in neighbouring Borno state. Nigerian police and the regional education ministry denied any abductions had taken place, but parents and other witnesses also told Reuters some girls were missing. The Minister of Defence will also lead a Federal Government delegation to Yobe tomorrow, to ascertain the situation.

One eyewitness from a nearby village reported seeing girls "crying and wailing " in the back of three vehicles, although these accounts have not been verified.

"I was in the school when the Boko Haram insurgents came at exactly the time we were preparing to break our usual Monday fast".

THEWILL recalls that Abdumaliki Sunmonu, Yobe Police Commissioner, has said there is no case of abduction yet saying the Police was profiling the students to know those who are missing.

State government officials said Wednesday about 50 girls remained missing though dozens had returned to the area after fleeing.

"Many of the students some of whom are indigenous had scurried to safety in different directions".

He confirmed that during the raid and escape of the Boko Haram Monday night three men were also abducted but released at daybreak to their community.

"We have been hearing many numbers, between 67 and 94". The army still largely controls access and infrastructure has been devastated by nine years of conflict.

The effort has been intensified by the government and security personnel to trace those still at large."Said another source".
