Boko Haram’s Abduction of Dapchi Schoolgirls: Buhari Apologises

President Muhammadu Buhari has apologized for the fresh abduction of the students of the Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State.


He tendered his apology in a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant, Mallam Garba Shehu as he described the incident as “national disaster.”


No fewer than 46 schoolgirls are still in the custody of the Boko Haram insurgents, according to the statement released by the state government.


Buhari said that he shared the pains of the parents whose children had not been rescued, adding that the government would not spare any effort to bring the pupils back safely.


He stated that more troops had been deployed in the area for surveillance to ensure that the schoolgirls are brought back in peace.


The president said that he received the devastating news and was baffled that the number of the students could not be accounted for by the local authorities of the area.
