Yobe school girls unaccounted for - Police commissioner

Chibok school girls

President Muhammadu Buhari dispatched his foreign and defense ministers on Wednesday to Yobe to investigate the situation, said Information Minister Lai Mohammed, who was also headed there.

Armed Boko Haram fighters invaded Dapchi on Monday, forcing residents, including students of Government Girls Secondary school, to flee into the bushes.

Contrary to reports by some media houses that another group of school girls were abducted from a secondary school in Borno, the police have debunked the reports as false.

.

"No one can tell if they were abducted or not. These people are taking care of us, and we are grateful to them", one girl said.

"We can not say, because the insurgents went into the students' hostel, and many of these students scaled the fence and escaped into the bushes".

This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen by the Director-General, Press Affairs to the state governor, Malam Abdullahi Bego.

He said: "This has brought down the 94 missing students realised at the yesterday's headcount to 46 this morning (Wednesday)". "We hope to have concrete information by tomorrow, once we do, we'll let Nigerians know".

Study Finds Food Quality Matters For Weight Loss, Not Calories
Study leader Professor Christopher Gardner said fizzy drinks, for example, may be low in fat but they are not healthy . Arguments over whether reducing fat or carbohydrate is more important for weight loss have raged for years.

Alamin couldn't confirm if any bodies were recovered at the scene and the Yobe state government said more details about the number of girls rescued and their condition will be provided in "due course".

Yobe police commissioner Abdumaliki Sunmonu, said the students are being profiled to know who is missing.

"They fired shots and left the town toward Gaidam.in the night, where they abducted three people", said Police Commissioner Sumonu Abdulmaliki to reporters Tuesday.

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

According to him, there were no abductions or deaths inside the school.

Bego added that the governor is working with the military and law enforcement agencies to make sure all the students from the school are accounted for.

Last month, Boko Haram released a video purporting to show some of the Chibok girls still in its custody, saying they do not wish to return home.
