Nigeria sets up probe into girls' school attack, abductions

Dapchi Girls: Hold Army, Police Responsible …-Dogara …As FG Lists Details Of Missing 110 Students ….Army Speaks

Monday urged the National Assembly to as a matter of urgent national importance, open a full scale investigation into the circumstances leading to and surrounding the unfortunate abduction of 110 school girls in Dapchi, Yobe State last week.

This fact recalls the event in 2014 in the town of Chibok, also in the northeast of the country, when 270 schoolchildren were abducted by members of Boko Haram, some of whom remain captive.

Plan called the Dapchi schoolgirls kidnap a "classic case of history repeating itself with no lessons learnt" and a gross violation of the girls' right to freedom and equality.

A statement released by its National Coordinator, Mr. Adewole Kehinde in Abuja on Tuesday, the group said the Nigerian Army didn't inform the Police "officially" as claimed by the Army Spokesperson.

"We know that girls who return to their communities after escaping capture, often with children, face stigma and exclusion, so it is likely this incident will affect these girls for the rest of their lives".

"We still have over 100 girls that are unaccounted for".

It also said that Boko Haram was plotting an abduction of 17 citizens for suicide missions and a separate mass abduction of citizens for other deadly missions such as the use of Personnel-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (PBIED) or Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) "using especially Golf cars with registration numbers from states of the North".

"Obviously, the number of sorties does not equate the number of aircraft deployed".

Boko Haram, the Islamic terror group in Nigeria that has slaughtered tens of thousands of people, among them Christians, has kidnapped 110 schoolgirls in a recent raid, state officials admitted.

The list, which also contains the contact address and phone number of each missing girl, was verified by a 26-member Screening Committee that included the Executive Secretary, State Teaching Service Board, Musa Abdulsalam; Director, Schools' Management, Ministry of Education, Shuaibu Bulama; Principal of GGSTC, Adama Abdulkarim; the two school's Vice Principals, Ali Musa Mabu and Abdullahi Sule Lampo; Admission Officer, Bashir Ali Yerima; and the Form Masters for all the classes. The troops were moved to Kanama on a reinforcement after Nigerian soldiers came under heavy firepower there.

"It is thus obligatory, to state that the allegation reportedly attributed to the Governor of Yobe State is misleading and misinforming".

The police have rejected the allegations, saying the military did not "formally hand over the security of the town to them". "He never made mention that the area was handed over to the Nigeria Police".

"The abductions in Dapchi brought us back to the starting point and significantly reverses some of the gains in the war against the insurgents", he said.

He said the police did nothing to repel the attack despite having a division in Dapchi.
