Mystery surrounds the fate of more than 100 teenage girls who were abducted from a school in the remote north-east of Nigeria. The military had come out yesterday to say that all but eight of the 129 girls have escaped, but parents of the girls say that figure is not accurate and many are still missing.
There have been conflicting reports coming from various sources concerning the over 120 girls that were abducted a few days ago by Boko Haram in Borno state.
Another source has also said that 15 girls were able to escape, but the rest are still being held captive. It is thought Islamist militant group Boko Haram took the girls to forested areas near the Cameroonian border.
A N50 million reward is being given to anyone who provides information that will lead to the capture of the terrorists responsible for this kidnapping according to Sahara Reporters.
