Dapchi Girls: Army Did Not Withdraw Troops Before Attack – Defence Headquarters

Must read

The Defence Headquarters has debunked reports that troops were withdrawn a few days before the abduction of schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe State.The Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. John Agim, said there was no truth in the allegation that the military withdrew a few hours to the attack. Agim said, “There is no truth in the allegation because the military has been in a location that is about 30 kilometres to the school.”A national newspaper had reported on Saturday that the Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, said security men withdrew from Dapchi a few hours to the attack. Gaidam stated this when the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, paid him a visit in Damaturu, the state capital. The Boko Haram insurgents, who abducted the girls, were reported to have arrived at Dapchi at 7pm on Monday and left at 9pm.Photo Credit: Getty
