2 Dapchi School Girls Reportedly Killed In Failed Rescue Operation In Yobe State, 13 Still Missing



Two dead bodies of the missing Dapchi schoolgirls abducted by the Boko Haram terrorists on Monday, in Yobe state, have been recovered by the Nigerian military during a rescue operation on Wednesday.

According to a report by Reuters two of the girls were killed while 13 others are still missing.

The report said a resident and a local government official said there is jubilation in Dapchi community over the rescue of the girls.

“Everybody is celebrating their coming with songs and praises to God Almighty,” said Babagana Umar, one of the parents whose daughter had disappeared.

“The only sad news is that two girls were dead and no explanation.” They said the rescued girls were returned to the village of Dapchi late on Wednesday evening.

Reports also indicate that the Nigerian military rescued 76 of the schoolgirls.

Boko Haram terrorists had, Monday, attacked the Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi, Yobe state, and abducted many of the girls.

Meanwhile, the Yobe state Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, has faulted the claim that the Nigerian army actually rescued some of the girls.

The Governor made the disclosure when he visited the affected families in Dapchi community, Yobe state. Governor Gaidam was said to have told the people of Dapchi community that none of the abducted schoolgirls has been rescued yet.

The report also said the Governor urged the affected parents and the community to continue praying for the safe return of their daughters.
