The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed shock over reports that 94 Nigerian female students were declared missing after Boko Haram insurgents attacked the Girls Secondary School Dapchi, Yobe state on Tuesday.

The party in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondinyan charged the Inspector General of Police to immediate put machinery on ground to unravel the circumstances surrounding the situation of the school girls.

The party said:
“Indeed, we are very disturbed by this ugly development, especially given the conflicting reports on the whereabouts of these innocent girls.

“Our party restates that the life, safety and wellbeing of all Nigerians remain of paramount importance to us and we therefore insist that all efforts must be exerted to find these students.

“The PDP is monitoring development on the position of the Nigeria Police investigation of the matter. We however charge the Inspector General of Police to immediately put all machinery in place to unravel this disturbing situation and recover the missing children.

“We also urge the All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled Federal Government to live up to its basic responsibility of protecting lives and property in our country.”
