Parents and guardians of the abducted school girls in Yobe still wait for their daughters to return, days after government told them to be prayerful.
TVC News Correspondent, Michael Oshomah who visited Dapchi reports that affected parents had been waiting for several hours in anticipation of good news about their daughters, but the waiting was in vain.
Governor Ibrahim Gaidam who visited Dapchi town with top government officials informed the parents that the efforts of security personnel to locate the whereabouts of the girls and rescue them were yet to achieve the desired results.
Although it was a bitter pill for the parents to swallow, the Governor reiterated that the students are yet to be seen and pleaded with them to intensify prayers for the release of the girls.
The governor later went to the school where the students were abducted and met with the federal government delegation behind closed doors.
The Yobe state Government had earlier issued a statement telling the public that the missing students had been found, heaping profuse praise on the Nigerian army for the feat.
Abdullahi Bego, Yobe state Government’s spokesman recently apologised to Nigerians for that piece of false information.
