This kidnapping is reminiscent of Chibok's tragedy in 2014, which elicited global condemnation, and contributed in part to the defeat of then President Goodluck Jonathan in the presidential election the following year.

"I am here in Yobe state to express my honest sympathy with the parents, government and entire people of Yobe whose daughters were carelessly abducted by the unrepented terrorists".

They are expected to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the abduction of the girls, confirm the presence, composition, scale and disposition of security emplaced in Dapchi as well as in GGSTC before the incident and suggest measures that can lead to the location and rescue of the girls.

In his remarks, Governor Ibrahim Geidam of Yobe State commended the President for making Yobe and the Northeast safer and expressed the appreciation of the people of the state for the steps being taken by the Federal government to bring back their girls.

"The Dapchi and Chibok students are our girls and must enjoy our protection".

The group, which was set up in the wake of Chibok, accused the government of "incompetence and carelessness" and would sue it for criminal negligence if the girls were not freed.

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari, Wednesday in Yobe State said that his administration's prompt response to the adoption of 110 students of Government Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State was a clear departure from what he described as "the insensitivity of the past administration" that could not do anything when over 100 Chibok girls were abducted by Boko Haram in 2014.

The EU expressed its full support "to the Nigerian government and people in their fight against violence in all its forms and expresses its condolences and sympathy to the families of those killed and injured". Only a patently dishonest leader can claim to have defeated Boko Haram with such numbers.
