Police confirm abduction of 3 in Yobe Boko Haram attack

To prove that members of the group still pose a threat and not defeated as Nigerians are made to believe by the government and security agents, the group struck few days after the directive by the Chief of Army Staff by attacking Dapchi town in Yobe State.

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

According to her, not all the girls escaped the armed insurgents' attack.

The attack recalls Boko Haram's audacious kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok in April 2014.

That triggered a global campaign to try and rescue the so-called Chibok girls.

Yobe's police commissioner Abdulmaliki Sunmonu confirmed the attack.

He said: "They shot sporadically and forced the school food store opened".

A teacher at the school told Daily Trust that 94 students could not be accounted for following a roll call.

Last September, a group of more than 100 of the Chibok girls were reunited with their families at a party in the capital Abuja.

"No one can tell if they are abducted or not".

Fifty-seven of them escaped, with 219 taken away. He said security agents are on top of the situation.

He said so far, there was no report of the abduction of any of the girls in the school.

He said, "You must not allow them to escape".

The attack comes as Nigeria's military continues its raid on what's left of the militants hideouts in the Northeast.

The school has been shut, and is being guarded by troops.

Most of the group were released in May as part of a controversial prisoner swap deal with the Nigerian government that saw five Boko Haram commanders released.

Local residents allege that Boko Haram militants had planned to kidnap the schoolgirls.

Boko Haram militants have been fighting a long insurgency in their quest for an Islamic state in northern Nigeria.
