President Muhammad Buhari’s government has extended the search for 110 schoolgirls abducted last month to neighbouring countries.

This is according to the information ministry in a statement on Friday.

On February 19, the girls were stolen from their school in the town of Dapchi, in Yobe State by suspected Boko Haram militants.

Yobe state directly borders Niger and is also close to Nigeria’s borders with Chad and Cameroon, so it makes sense that the search for them extends to those countries.

The kidnap of the girls is a sad reminder of the security threat Nigeria still faces, especially in the Northeast, despite claims by government that the threat has been degraded.
