Nigerian parents call for return of 105 kidnapped girls

He said they shared with Yobe people the pain of the unfortunate incidence "I have been in your shoes, I know the trauma and pain your going through". But just a week after they withdrew the troops, Boko Haram came to attack the town.

"I blame the whole attack on Dapchi on the military and the defence headquarters who withdrew troops from Dapchi".

The governor, who is also the Chairman of Northern governors forum, said both attacks were struck when least expected. "The same thing happened in 2013 when the military suddenly removed troops guarding the town and a week later Boko Haram went there to attack the town and the secondary school there killing 29 students".

He said, based on the briefings from the Principal of the College, Hajia Adama Abdulkarim, and the state Commissioner for Education, Mohammed Lamin, 906 students - out of whom 110 have not been accounted for - were in the school on the day of the attack.

Addressing journalists at the Yobe state Government House, Gaidam alleged that security check points were withdrawn from Dapchi and other communities, few days before the attack which he believes gave room for the incident.

The Yobe State Government recently said it has spent N15.8 billion in the last three years on fighting the Boko Haram insurgency.

He said the federal and state governments, as well as parents would collaborate with security agents to work towards successful rescue of the students.

THE Federal Government has confirmed that 110 students of the Government Science and Technical College in Dapchi, Yobe State, are so far unaccounted for after insurgents believed to be from a faction of Boko Haram invaded their school on Monday (19 February 2018).

Governor Gaidam, however, promised that the government will stop at nothing to ensure the girls are rescued.

The federal government is yet to acknowledge the exact number of girls kidnapped by the terrorists.
