Following reports of an alleged case of yet another abduction of school girls by Boko Haram insurgents, the Nigerian presidency has confirmed that there are indeed girls that are missing from the Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi in Yobe State.

A terse tweet on the official twitter handle of President Muhammadu Buhari revealed this on Wednesday

I have directed the Military and Police to mobilize immediately to ensure that all the missing girls of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, are found. The Minister of Defence will also lead a Federal Government delegation to Yobe tomorrow, to ascertain the situation.’

The sad situation is coming exactly eight weeks to the fourth anniversary of the abduction of 276 female students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in neighbouring Borno State.

While some of the Chibok girls have been rescued, as much as 112 of them remain unaccounted for with Boko haram still insisting that it either still has them or has indeed sold them off into slavery.
