PDP Faults FG Over Abduction of Dapchi Girls By Boko Haram
The Peoples Democratic Party has faulted the Federal Government’s disjointed information over the missing students of Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State.
The National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus said that the figures being read to the public by the Federal Government was conflicting and could confuse the security agents on how many students to rescue.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said on Thursday that the government did not know the exact number of the missing girls.
On Wednesday, the State Government said that 48 of the students had been found, contrary to the information by the troops to have rescued them.
It was learnt that there were 94 missing girls out of which 48 had been rescued while 46 were yet to return home.
They all escaped into the bush when the Boko Haram terrorists stormed their school on Monday.
There is also a report that two of the students were killed during the exchange of gunshots between the insurgents and the troops of the Nigerian Army on Thursday.
According to Secondus, the information so far gathered now is confusing and misleading, “What we know is that there are still scores of girls not yet rescued.”
