Nigeria’s Boko Haram Islamic terrorists kidnapped over 90 school girls

Just when you think that Boko Haram has been crushed or quelled, the Islamic terrorist group in Nigeria strikes with a horrific results: “Parents and school authorities have revealed that at least 94 school girls from  Government Girls Science and Technical Secondary School at Dapchi town in Bursari local government area of Yobe state are missing after an all-girls school was attacked by Islamist militant group, Boko Haram.”

The Sahara Reporters group painted a worse picture than the news story which broke at the BBC, nearly doubling the estimates they reported.

“Militants raided their school on Monday evening, but many of the students and staff had fled before they arrived,” the BBC noted. “It was initially thought that the girls had escaped but two days later, their whereabouts are still not known.”

Back to Sahara:

According to residents of the community,  Boko Haram terrorists came into Dapchi town with trucks mounted with high caliber weapons shooting sporadically and later headed to the girls’ hostels at the school where some 740 girls were resident. The sound from the sect’s militants explosives and gunshots alerted the students and their teachers who immediately scampered into nearby bushes for safety.

However, after the headcount on Tuesday, it was discovered that at least 94 of the girls were still missing. The school was immediately closed down while education authorities and security forces in the state began efforts to locate the missing students.

Boko Haram dominated headlines years ago, kidnapping over 270 girls at point and ravishing the landscape across Nigeria and nearby Chad and Cameroon.

The Islamic group seeks a “Caliphate” or “Islamic State” using violence and terror as they kidnap girls and boys, rape and brainwash them as they target villages across the war torn nation.

Each attack using starts the same (as noted in the BBC coverage): “The jihadists came into the town, firing guns and letting off explosives, causing students and teachers to flee into the surrounding bush.”
