Nearly half the girls abducted from Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi by suspected Boko Haram terrorists in Yobe State are said to have been ferried across the border into Niger Republic Daily Trust reports.
NaijaNews learnt that the girls were split into two groups; one was left in an enclave in northern Borno State and the other taken to a village in Niger Republic.
The report also stated the girls were abducted by the Musab Albarnawi faction of the Boko Haram which is loyal to the Islamic State of West Africa.
Naija News understands that “The second batch has been moved to Tumbun Gini area of Abadam LGA of Borno,”
Meanwhile, The Yobe State governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam has re-emphasized that the Boko Haram attack in Dapchi and Buni-Yadi years back were aided by Military withdrawals from those locations.
“I want to put the record straight, there was no military presence at the time of Dapchi attack because we don’t even know that the Military have been withdrawn.”
The governor however advised the people in the state to be calm, while expressing optimism that the girls would return to their parents safely.
