Saraki in statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja, described the attack as one too many.

Recall that 94 girls from the Government Girls’ Science and Technical Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe state were reported missing after Boko Haram attack on Monday, February 19.

However, state commissioner of education, Mohammed Lamin disclosed that Forty-Eight out of the missing students have returned.

Saraki in reaction urged all security agencies to get to the root of the matter, arrest the perpetrators and ensure that all students of the school are properly accounted for.

“Security agencies should reinforce security around academic institutions in the country in order to prevent criminal elements from taking advantage of such soft targets to disrupt academic activities and wreak havoc at a time the Federal Government is working assiduously to end the incidents of terror in the Northeast and other flash points in the country.


“They should be proactive in protecting lives and property in the country and also ensuring that accurate information about attacks such as the one recently witnessed in Dapchi, Yobe State, is promptly made available to members of the public to prevent unnecessary speculation and panic by family members of victims and citizens alike.

“I express sympathy with the affected students, parents, school authorities and the government and people of Yobe State over the unfortunate incident,” the statement read.
