February 22, 2018: More than hundreds girls were missing today two days after Boko Haram attacked on a school in northeast Nigeria that has raised fears of a repeat of the 2014 Chibok kidnapping that shocked the world. That time Boko Haram kidnapped more than 270 girls from a school in the town Chibok.


Islamic militants stormed the Government Girls’ Science Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe state, on Monday evening. After the militant’s attack, the teachers and students fled from the school premises. But fears have been growing after missing the girls. More than 100 school-girls whereabouts are unknown.

According to a statement of the Yobe government, an unspecified number of girls were rescued from Boko Haram. But two girls were found dead. Around 50 parents and guardians converged on the school today to demand answers, as police said 111 were still missing. According to the police source, 815 school-girls returned to the school and were visibly seen, out of 926 in the school.

The length of time since the attack and Boko Haram’s use of kidnapping as a weapon during its nearly nine year insurgency has increased fears of another mass abduction.
Book Haram has kidnapped thousands of women and young girls, as well as men and boys of fighting age during the conflict, which has left at least 20,000 dead since 2009. Some 300 children were among 500 people abducted from the town of Damasak in November 2014.
