The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed concern over the conflicting reports on the girls who fled Government Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, following a Boko Haram attack on Monday night.

On Wednesday, Mohammed Lamin, the state commissioner of education, said out of 98 missing students, 48 had returned.

Some hours later, Abdulmaliki Sumonu, the state commissioner of police, contradicted him by saying 111 girls, not 94 were missing.

Responding in a statement by Kola Ologbindiyan, spokesman of the PDP, the party asked Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, to do his best to ensure the girls are found.

“Indeed, we are very disturbed by this ugly development especially given the conflicting reports on the whereabouts of these innocent girls,” the statement read.

“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.”

The party also urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) government to live up to its basic responsibility of protecting lives and property in the country.
