More than 100 schoolgirls missing after Boko Haram attack in Nigeria

Yobe Attack FG Confirms Abduction Of 110 Schoolgirls

They all bear responsibility for this unfortunate incident.

Nigeria's army and police on Monday publicly disagreed over the security arrangements that were in place in the northeastern town where 110 girls were abducted by suspected Boko Haram militants.

According to the New York Times, the missing girls' parents are forming a similar organization to Bring Back Our Girls, to advocate the release of their daughters.

The Nigerian government has released the names of the 110 missing girls, some as young as 11 years old, who have not been seen since a raid on their school in Dapchi last week.

"This allegation is not only unfortunate but also very far from the truth", the Army spokesperson said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to halt the feasting with the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains in Aso Villa and show leadership by visiting the troubled Dapchi, Yobe State, to get a first hand information on the circumstances surrounding the abduction of the 110 school girls under his watch.

"The traumatic experience of the Chibok abduction which is still fresh in our minds should have served as a warning signal to security agencies to provide adequate security protection to all schools in the North East".

A group, United Young Professionals (UYP) has urged the Nigeria Army to rescue the schoolgirls of Government Girls Science and Technical College (GGSTC) who were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in Dapchi, Yobe State, on 19 February.

Information Minister Lai Mohammed, who was part of a delegation of ministers who met parents and teachers in Dapchi and announced the number of missing girls, also said police and security officials had been deployed to schools in the state. Troops were redeployed to support comrades stationed on the border with Niger, it said in a statement.

"What role did the police play when Boko Haram entered the community?"

"While paying a courtesy call on the Executive Governor of Yobe State, in the company of the Chief of the Air Staff, on 27 February 2018".

"Members of the public in Yobe State are implored to disregard and discountenance this claim that the Military formally handed the security of Dapchi town to the Nigeria Police as untrue, unfounded and misleading".

"Governor, Ibrahim Geidam is the Chief Security Officer of Yobe State and his statement can not be taken lightly as he has indicted the Nigeria Army as the cause of the adoption", Adewole said.

"To ascertain the existing communication in Dapchi and their functionality".

He said the police did nothing to repel the attack despite having a division in Dapchi.
