Boko Haram attack school to embarrass govt -Lai Mohammed

The Minister of communication, Alhaji Lar Mohammed, said yesterday that the attack that led to missing of school children at Government Girls Science and Technical College Dapchi was to embarrass the government and attract attention.


The Minister who spoke at a fact finding visit in Government Girls Science and Technical College Dapchi, said with the determination of the gallant soldiers the days of Boko haram is over.


On the case of the number of  students being abducted, the Minister said they have not been able to establish how many people where abducted.


"What we know for a fact now is we cannot account for some students but since two days ago students have been reporting back to school.

We also have it on record that some of them have phoned from their hiding place, some from Damaturu, some from other locations. But, as things develop we will let you know.

But, we cannot categorically say ‘X’  number of students have been abducted but we can say not all students have returned" he said.

Fielding question on the state government statement about the rescue of some of the girls, he said "I think we should take it in context, to me, the most authoritative position is the one given by both the governor, theater commander and the GOC. What we know is that some students can not be accounted for. That is because some of them are still returning back", he added
