News Alert: Boko Haram Frees Some Abducted Dapchi Schoolgirls | The Precision



Some of the 110 schoolgirls abducted from the northeast
Nigerian town of Dapchi last month were brought back on Wednesday, two
witnesses said. 

People from the town said the girls were
returned by men they thought were fighters from the Islamist militant
Boko Haram group. They did not say how many girls had come back. 
A military officer at a checkpoint near Dapchi told Reuters: “Boko Haram have brought the girls.”

kidnapping on Feb. 19 of the girls aged 11-19, was the biggest mass
abduction since Boko Haram took more than 270 schoolgirls from the town
of Chibok in 2014 – a case that triggered international outrage. 
Dapchi abduction has piled pressure on President Muhammadu Buhari, who
came to power in 2015 promising to crack down on Boko Haram’s
nine-year-old insurgency and could face the voters again next year. (Reuters)
