Yobe attack: 48 out of 94 missing girls return


Forty-Eight out of the missing ninety-four students from Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi have returned, the Yobe state government said.

The state commissioner of education, Mohammed Lamin, disclosed this on Wednesday.

He said that while 28 of the missing students returned on Tuesday night, 20 more returned on Wednesday morning.

His words, “This has brought down the 94 missing students realised at the yesterday headcount to 48 this morning.

“We are still hopeful that more are returning soon”, he said.

Recall that 94 girls from the Government Girls Science and Tecnical Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe state were reported missing after Boko Haram attack on Monday February 19th.

The sect members stormed the school in the night, shooting sporadically in the air. The teachers and students, over 700 of them in the boarding school, were said to have escaped before the sect members could get to them.

However, when parents and teachers conducted a headcount yesterday, it was discovered that 94 of the girls were missing.

While the state police command maintained there is no case of abduction, the school authorities and parents say 94 of their girls are missing.
