Missing Nigerian girls town exposed by security gap: parents

Missing Nigerian girls town exposed by security gap: parentsA town in northeast Nigeria where Boko Haram is believed to have kidnapped scores of schoolgirls was vulnerable to attack because of a lack of security, residents said on Friday. Terrified pupils fled the school in Dapchi, Yobe state, on Monday night when heavily armed fighters stormed the town in a convoy of pickup trucks. Nigeria’s government has been unable to confirm the number of missing girls, which has revived memories of the mass abduction of more than 200 girls in Chibok in April 2014.
