Confusion as Yobe Gov says No Missing Dapchi Girl Has Returned
Confusion reigned on Thursday as there was conflicting information from several government sources about the fate of students who were declared missing after a Boko Haram attack on Government Girls Science Technical College, Dapchi, Bursari Local Government Area, Yobe State.
It remained unclear whether the terrorists actually abducted any girl or the students scampered into the bush upon sensing an attack from Boko Haram fighters. Also shrouded in confusion is the number of girls missing, and whether any of them had returned or been rescued.
None of these issues was cleared on Thursday even as the state Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, visited Dapchi community, declaring emphatically that none of the missing girls had neither returned nor been rescued by security agencies.
Also speaking on the incident, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the federal government was unsure of the situation on the ground, pleading for more time to ascertain the facts of the matter.
“On the issue of the number of missing girls, we cannot give what we are not sure of, until we hear from their parents, we cannot say this is the number. Give us a few more time please,” Mohammed told reporters shortly after he arrived at the school in Dapchi on Thursday afternoon.
