Parents storm Yobe school, evacuate students over Boko Haram attack

Boko Harm's Yobe attack: 'Many girls are missing' – Escapee schoolgirl

In a statement issued Wednesday, Bego said that more than 50 of the 926 students were still missing.

DAMATURU-ON Monday night, Boko Haram launched an attack on Government Girls College, Dapchi, Yobe State, with the intention to abduct students of the school.

He said "Mr. President has directed military and other security agencies to take immediate charge and control of Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, and informed him of developments".

However, Commissioner of Police Abdulmalik Sunmonu yesternight told the Nigerian Tribune that he was not really certain of the alleged abduction based on the information at his disposal.

She wondered if the Buhari led Federal Government did not learn anything from the incident of the abducted Chibok girls.

The statement reads, "The CM's advisor called again at 11:20pm to check if I had left my residence". First time we saw a chief secretary being assaulted on the directions of a CM.

Some witnesses, though, have described seeing the militants take girls with them.

Parents of the students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, have started evacuating their children.

President Muhammadu Buhari dispatched his foreign and defense ministers on Wednesday to Yobe to investigate the situation, said Information Minister Lai Mohammed, who was also headed there.

The police chief told reporters that security forces had pursued the insurgents in a new location where they were reported to have been seen.

The militant group had invaded the school on Monday, February 19, 2018, and made away with loads of food items from the school, sending students and staff running into the bush for safety.

"I can not say how many of us (were involved) but I know that our game master was able to escape with about 60 students into the bush".

"This has brought down the 94 missing students realized at the yesterday head count to 48 this morning". We still don't know how many of our daughters were recovered and how many are still missing.

Officials are saying that there were only three abductions, and none of them were girls.

Getting accurate information from the remote northeast remains hard.
