Rep reveals location of abducted schoolgirls

A Reps member says the Dapchi girls are currently in Bulabulin, Yunusari local government are of Yobe state.

Bukar told TheNation that the Dapchi girls are currently in Bulabulin, Yunusari local government are of Yobe state.

The lawmaker said noted that Boko Haram members had been present in the state for over four years.

“The girls are within Yobe,” Bukar said. “We have an idea that they are in Bulabulin, Yunusari Local Government. The military is aware that Boko Haram has been in that place for over four years. They live in that place like their own city,” he added.

Military effort to rescue Dapchi girls

The lawmaker who praised the efforts of the military towards the rescue of the abducted Dapchi girls, however, noted that the situation deserves more commitment.

“I cannot blame the military because I am speaking with those that are carrying out the operation,” Bukar said. “We have been speaking and they are telling me everything that they are doing; so, I cannot say I will blame anybody in the military. They are doing everything but I think they need to improve in their search so as to rescue those girls.

“It is not the issue of sending 10 policemen or 20 soldiers.  It is a matter of commitment.  That is what we need. If they like, let them give me the uniform and I will wear it and go and show them the place.

“Even the day of the incident, the chairman, member, House of Assembly and I went to Gumsa because we had information that three of the girls died along the way and they were thrown away but it was wrong information,” the lawmaker said.

Military knew about the attack?

Meanwhile, a document obtained by SaharaReporters shows that the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) was notified by the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) of plans by Boko Haram militants to carry out a massive attack in February 2018.
