Yobe State governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, has retracted the statement issued earlier on the rescue of school girls abducted by Boko haram militants in Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, in Yobe state.
Governor Gaidam, who was at the Palace of the district head in Dapchi town to console parents and residents over the unfortunate incident, said there was no established case of abduction on the school girls to this day.
“Until now, we have no certainly that these boys (Boko haram) have taken these girls. We should keep praying so that God reveal the whereabouts of the girls.
“We directed the soldiers and security personnel to go anywhere the girls are said to have been seen and find them.
I am together with the GOC, Brig-Gen Garba. His men went to places that the girls were said to have been sighted but, for the past two days, wherever the troops go, they were only told that it was a convoy of Boko haram passing through the villages but they didn’t see any girls.
