More than 100 schoolgirls missing after Boko Haram attack in Nigeria

U.S. Condemns Abduction Of Dapchi Schoolgirls

A federal government delegation including Nigeria's defence and foreign ministers was due in Dapchi on Thursday. These efforts however began to appear for what they actually were; incompetencies, lies, and conspiracies.

Nigeria's government has been unable to confirm the number of missing girls, which has revived memories of the mass abduction of more than 200 girls in Chibok in April 2014. That case drew global attention to the nine-year insurgency, which has sparked what the United Nations has called one of the world's worst humanitarian crises.

Boko Haram horrified the world when it abducted 276 girls from a boarding school in Chibok nearly four years ago.

Other estimates from local police and government officials range from around 50 to more than 100 missing. In 2015, Amnesty International put the number of victims at 2,000 but that figure has risen since then.

Manzo said local residents were alarmed when Boko Haram stormed the community late Monday as it was clear from the behavior of the invaders that their mission was mainly to abduct the students.

However, the group continues to launch attacks in the country's northeast, and its leader remains at large.

Though government has denied paying ransom for the Chibok girls so far returned, there are indications that the Boko Haram sect did not release them for nothing, and that a deal was struck.

The President who described the incident as "national disaster", assured parents whose children and wards were abducted, that the his government will ensure the girls are returned safely, and the attackers made to face justice.

The points record is one Vinatieri has been well aware of. "I guess I'll take these one year at a time and see where it ends up". And with a new head coach and hopefully getting Andrew Luck back to win some games, Vinatieri could go out as a victor too.

The Dapchi abduction, also has a similar conspiratorial narrative attached to it, raising questions that beg for answers.

However, the PDP in a statement signed and released by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan on Friday said the recent abduction and other incidents that border largely on kidnappings and killings shows that President Buhari and the APC have failed in the simple task of securing the lives and properties of Nigerians when it most.

"Actually, army patrol vehicle met an abandoned truck along Geidam in Yobe State and Kareto in Borno State", he said.

Another parent, speaking anonymously, said people had been commending the authorities on their quick actions, but the change of position "angered the people".

"We however want to task the government, the Nigerian Army with the other services of the military and the other security agencies to dispose of all niceties and crush all the remnants of the terrorist group without mercy".

Soldiers now prowl the village and guard the perimeter fence of the school, which is nearly deserted except for a few police.

"I woke up with the strong hope of meeting my daughter and my wife had been making preparations for a warm welcome, only for us to receive this shattering news that all along the story has been a rumour", he added.
