Missing #DapchiGirls: “We are sorry that it happened” – President Buhari



Missing #DapchiGirls: "We are sorry that it happened" - President Buhari - BellaNaija

President Muhammadu Buhari has tendered an apology to the parents of the missing girls.

94 girls had been declared missing after insurgent group Boko Haram attacked a secondary school in Yobe State Government Girls Technical College Dapchi.

Although some of the girls had been reported to be rescued by the military, it was learned later that the news was false.

President Buhari, in a statement on his Twitter page, has described the attack as a national disaster.

No effort will be spared to ensure all the girls will be returned to their homes safely, he wrote.

I want the families of the girls yet unaccounted for at the Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi to know that no effort will be spared to ensure that all of them are returned safely, and the attackers arrested and made to face justice.

The entire country stands as one with the families, and with the government and people of Yobe State. This is a national disaster. We are sorry that it happened; we share your pain. Let me assure that our gallant armed forces will locate and safely return all the missing girls.

The military has since been deployed in response, and we are now sending more troops and surveillance aircraft to keep an eye on all movements in the entire territory on a 24-hour basis.

    Buhari you are a big liar. This is a failed tactic to play on Nigerian’s gullible minds. If faking missing girls, and act like you found them is your only political strategy to get votes then the country is doomed.

    Hey BN, thanks for the updates.

    Quick suggestion, how about including a map of Nigeria with the particular state mentioned in the article highlighted or outlined or in some way identified with each news story. You can have someone create these for all 36 states so they can be ready to use.

    It would be greatly appreciated
