The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed concern over the conflicting reports on the girls who fled Government Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, following a Boko Haram attack on Monday night.

In the same vein, Aishatu Abdullahi, one of the schoolgirls that escaped the attack has claimed that it was not all of the students that were so lucky as she claims that some of the girls may have been taken away by the armed insurgents.
Yobe state Police Commissioner Sumonu Abdulmaliki on Tuesday told reporters Boko Haram had not abducted any girls in Dapchi. "These people are taking care of us, and we are grateful to them", one girl said.
