Ever since news of attack on the Government Secondary school in Dapchi, Yobe, broke, there have been conflicting reports on the incident.
Some men, believed to be Boko Haram insurgents, attacked the school on Monday at around 7pm and 94 students could not be accounted for after the incident.
The whereabouts of the girls has not been ascertained but reports suggest that the girls could have been abducted by the Boko Haram insurgents.
One of the parents of the girls spoke to Stephanie Hegarty, a Nigeria reporter for BBC, and told her that the girls were taken away.
Hegarty wrote on her twitter account:
“Very conflicting accounts of what happened at Dapchi. Yobe state gov say 51 “unaccounted for” but they expect many to be found.
“A parent of a girl who is missing told me he saw girls being taken away in a truck and figure of missing is 93.
“Another father said that Boko Haram came into the town asking where the secondary school was, that they said they were on a mission and weren’t there to hurt anyone. While a teacher told me the militants were only after food.”
If the account of the parent is to be believed, then this might be a repeat of the 2014 abduction of 276 girls from a school in Chibok
