Boko Haram attack- a Father plea to find his daughter

The father of a 14-year-old girl who is among 110 believed to have been abducted by Boko Haram has pleaded with the Nigerian government to act quickly. Jihadists stormed the school in the town of Dapchi in the north-eastern Yobe state on 19 February. The attack has revived memories of the Chibok schoolgirl abduction in 2014.Thus, the father stated that he don’t want these girls to stay long with those militants as anything can happen to them so the government need to find them as soon as possible.

Anger has been growing among the girls’ parents over the troop pull-out.

The army has now deployed extra troops and planes to search for the schoolgirls, half of whom are reported to have been taken across the border to Niger, according to the Daily Trust newspaper.
