Dapchi Pupils Shun School
I will no longer return to school, one of the lucky pupils of the Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, Mariam Mohammed Miko, 15, has said.
He told our correspondent that she would prefer to jettison her ambition of becoming a Health Technologist to death in the hands of the Boko Haram insurgents.
Boko Haram broke into the college last Monday and kidnapped 110 pupils but Miko was able to escape from the terrorists.
Also another lucky pupil, Amina Abubakar Mohamadu, 15 said that her parents had been searching for another school so that she could complete her secondary education.
She said, “I will not go back to the Government Technical College because the security in the place is porous. What we learnt was that the Boko Haram would come again.”
To Fatima Mohammed Bilau, 15, “I will not go back until government rescues the abducted mates. Let us see how far the government handles this first,” she said.
The Federal Government said that the Nigerian Army and Nigeria Airforce are not leaving any stone unturned to ensure that the pupils are rescued.
On Wednesday, some aircraft were seen flying around the Dapchi villages for surveillance.
