The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the release of the Dapchi schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents in Yobe State as a scam by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

The girls were released on Wednesday morning with about five of them reportedly dead.

In a statement on Twitter by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologboniyan, the party said the release of the girls was a plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to gain heroic appraisal from Nigerians.
