PHOTOS: Hostel Of School Where Girls Were Abducted In Disarray
More revelations are emerging days after at least 110 girls were abducted from the Government Girls Technical Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe State.
The school, left totally unguarded by security operatives, also lacked other things that could give the girls assurance of safety.
It is another blow to the claims of defeat of the insurgents, with the Nation relapsing to a situation that was experienced in 2014.
Again, Nigeria has started a search for its young girls four years after over 200 girls were taken from a secondary school in Chibok, Borno State and it is not clear when these girls will return.
Some images of the school released by the BBC in a report leave a lot to think about.
The hostel of the school is in disarray, apparently put in that situation when the girls scampered for safety that the government could not provide them.
It is more like a building that had been abandoned for long.
One would expect that the windows and doors of schools with boarding facilities in northeast Nigeria would have iron bars as proofs, but that was not the case in Gapchi school.
The situation had left the school girls vulnerable to any attack and abduction.
The government had assured Nigerians of its commitment to securing school children in the northeast, as it makes effort to convince parents to bring their children back to school amidst insurgency that has lasted for over eight years.
But the appearance of this Dapchi school does not look like a place where security measures had been taken to keep the school girls safe.
