President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the military and other security agencies to take “immediate” charge of Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, recently attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.

He also sent a government delegation, led by Mansur Dan-Ali, minister of defence, to the town.

Lai Mohammed, minister of information, disclosed this to state house correspondents on Wednesday.

“Mr President has directed military and other security agencies to take immediate charge and control Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, and informed him of developments,” Mohammed told journalists.

“He has released a delegation led by the minister of defence to Dapchi, to get first-hand information as to what is happening tomorrow morning (Thursday).”

Asked if there is an additional information on the incident apart from the 48 students which the state government said have returned, the minister said: “That is precisely why Mr President is in direct contact with military and police and as soon as we get any information, we will let you know.”

A total of 111 students of the school are missing since the attack, according to the Yobe police command.

Police, however, said there is no case of abduction nor killing established yet, as most of the students are said to have escaped to the bush during the attack.
