The school authorities reportedly revealed that at least 94 students were missing after a head count conducted on Tuesday, February 20, 2018.

94 female students have been reported missing following a Boko Haram attack on Government Girls Secondary School at Dapchi town in Bursari local government area of Yobe state.
SaharaReporters claims that the school authorities revealed that at least 94 students were missing after a head count conducted on Tuesday, February 20, 2018.

The Nigerian military as well as the Yobe police command are yet to give a figure of casualties or missing persons following the insurgents' attack on the village on Monday night, February 19, 2018.

The school has been closed down while education authorities and security forces in the state began efforts to locate the missing students.

Yobe police command yet to confirm alleged missing students
In a report by Premium Times, the Yobe State police commissioner, Sunmonu Abdulmaliki, said that the school was attacked, but no immediate confirmation that any of the schoolgirls were abducted.

Abdulmaliki said: “Quite alright, the school was attacked.

“As at today, both the parents and the school authorities are doing a headcount.

“The school has up to 900 students, some of them are on farms, some of them have not resumed.

“I am sure by morning tomorrow, I should get the details from the ministry to know whether there are missing children or not.”

On Monday night, February 19, 2018, Dapchi town came under heavy attack of the Boko Haram leading to residents including students of Government Girls Secondary school, Dapchi, fleeing into the bush.

The insurgents reportedly attacked the headquarters of the Bursari local government council as well as the Girls Secondary school.

Alhaji Zanna Abatcha, chairman Bursari local government council said that the suspected insurgents have already left the town and more security operatives have been deployed to maintain security.

Chibok schoolgirls kidnap
In April 2014, Boko Haram kidnapped more than 270 girls from a school in the northeastern town of Chibok in Borno state sparking global outrage that birthed the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.

In September 2017, some 100 Chibok girls were reunited with their families after the Nigerian government shelled out over €2 million in ransom payments to Boko Haram terrorists.

Another round of backdoor negotiation. I thought they said they will end Boko Haram in 3 months on assumption of office? What's happening?
