"They withdrew the military personnel last week, which was not even known to us", he said.

The Nigerian government has finally confirmed that not fewer than 110 schoolgirls are missing from a government girls college in Dapchi, Yobe state after a Boko Haram attack on the high school on Monday, February 19. "The attack occurred barely a week after the military withdrew the soldiers from there", the Yobe governor said.

"Before then, Dapchi has been peaceful, there was never such incident".

The Federal Government has confirmed that 110 students of the Government Science and Technical College in Dapchi, Yobe State, are so far unaccounted for, after insurgents believed to be from a faction of Boko Haram invaded their school on Monday (19 February 2018). But just a week after they withdrew the troops, Boko Haram came to attack the town.

Amina Usman, a 15-year-old student, was among the pupils who escaped the attack on Government Girls Technical College.
