Confusion reigned due to conflicting information from several government sources about the fate of students who were declared missing after the invasion of on Government Girls Science Technical college, Dapchi, Busari Local Government Area, Yobe State, North-East, Nigeria by Boko Haram. It is unclear whether the terrorists actually abducted any student or they scampered into the bush upon the attack from the Boko Haram in the community.
Also confusing is the number of girls missing though a roll call after the incident shows 815 out of 926 students enrolled could be accounted for leaving a balance of 111 students unaccounted for.
Another confusion is whether any of them had returned or been rescued; the Yobe Government as at Wednesday claimed that the military had rescued an unspecific number of girls but apologised on Thursday night for the wrong information. As of now as per the Yobe State government, none has been rescued.
