Boko Haram returns 105 Dapchi Girls – sources
Unconfirmed reports indicate that Boko Haram, the terror organisation mounting an Islamist insurgency in Nigeria’s northeast, has “returned” about 105 school girls abducted from a Dapchi, Yobe State, secondary school weeks ago.
According to online news medium, Sahara Reporters the insurgents returned the girls to Dapchi in nine vehicles.
The girls are said to have been dropped off in the centre of Dapchi, with one girl dropped in a neighbouring village.
Five girls, however, are said to be dead according to sources.
The military or government have not as at this time confirmed the report. It was also not known whether ransoms were paid to effect the girls release.
However, other credible sources, including Mama Boko Haram (Hajiya Aisha Alkali Wakil), a liaison familiar with the group, have confirmed the report.
