‘NO MISSING GIRLS RESCUED’ AFTER BOKO HARAM ATTACK IN DAPCHI

DAPCHI – The governor of the Nigerian state of Yobe on Thursday told residents of a village that no missing girls had been rescued following a Boko Haram attack, according to four of those who heard the official speak.

On Wednesday, the government of the north-eastern state, where the girls’ village of Dapchi is located, told locals that 76 schoolgirls feared missing had been rescued by the Nigerian military.

The Boko Haram militants arrived in Dapchi on Monday evening in trucks, some mounted with heavy guns and painted in military camouflage, witnesses told Reuters.

The insurgents went directly to the school, shooting sporadically, sending students and teachers fleeing, the witnesses said, adding that some people had returned to Dapchi after spending the night hiding in the bush.

Nigerian security forces have begun a search and rescue mission, two people said.
Yobe state Police Commissioner Sumonu Abdulmaliki on Tuesday told reporters Boko Haram had not abducted any girls in Dapchi.
