Soldiers fled when Boko Haram insurgents returned schoolgirls - Dapchi Resident

Following the release of the kidnapped girls by Boko Haram, a resident of Dapchi in Yobe state, Abubakar Mohammed, has said that soldiers at a checkpoint in the town fled when the insurgents returned the schoolgirls on the morning of Wednesday, March 21, The Cable reports. Mohammed accused the military of harassment, saying that after the girls were released residents faced harassment in the hands of the military.
According to him, the soldiers at Dapchi General Hospital where the schoolgirls were taken to, claimed responsibility for their release. He said: “When Boko Haram came to Dapchi this morning, the military at the checkpoint ran away. They came in nine vehicles, Hilux and TATA bus.

The Boko Haram people dropped the girls and spoke to some villagers that they are not terrorists, but that they are preaching Islam. They said they are the only true believers and all Nigerians are unbelievers.

But now the military are molesting the parents and relatives of the girls who went to visit their wards in the hospital. They are beating some of them claiming they are the ones who rescued the girls. But the military has no hand in their rescue. The people of Dapchi have lost faith in the military now because they are molesting us. The youths are protesting in Dapchi right now against the military.

“Some of the girls said that Boko Haram did not molest or rape them. They only preached Islam to them, gave them the Hadith. That is all. They gave us our food to cook by ourselves.” Goni Ibrahim, son of the district head of Dapchi, also gave details of the return of the schoolgirls.

He said: “Around 12 midnight, the people of Gumsa (40 kilometres from Dapchi) called us to say Boko Haram dropped two of their daughters. “They told us they were coming to Dapchi this morning.

So around 7 o’clock this morning, we saw nine vehicles. Many people were running saying Boko Haram is coming to Dapchi but the vehicles dropped the girls and left. The girls came into the village many weak because of hunger. They said they were in transit in the bush for many days. “Many of them are now in the General Hospital Dapchi where they are receiving treatment.

They are sick because of hunger. More than 200 soldiers have surrounded the hospital and not allowing anybody in. They are saying they will take some of them to Damaturu or Abuja for treatment because the hospital cannot contain the girls.”
