2 Dapchi Girls Killed In Rescue Operation, Others Still Missing
The corpses of two missing Dapchi school girls who were abducted by the Boko Haram terrorists on Monday, in Yobe state, have been recovered by the Nigerian military.
Their bodies were recovered during the rescue operation, according to Reuters.
Recall that Boko Haram terrorists had on Monday, attacked the Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi, Yobe state, and abducted many of the girls, and ever since, several conflicting reports have emerged as to the true situation of the incident.
While Nigerian army claimed to have rescued 48 of the girls, the Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam on Thursday faulted the claim when he visited the affected families in Dapchi community, Yobe state on Thursday.
Governor Gaidam said “Until now, we have no certainty that these boys (Boko Haram) have taken these girls.
“We should keep praying so that God reveal the whereabouts of the girls.
“We directed the soldiers and security personnel to go anywhere the girls are said to have been seen and find them. I am together with the GOC, Brig-Gen Garba.
“His men went to places that the girls were said to have been sighted but, for the past two days, wherever the troops go, they were only told that it was a convoy of Boko haram passing through the villages but they didn’t see any girls.”
