The cops have been deployed to Yobe, Adamawa and Borno to protect students and teachers, newswire, PRNigeria reported on Monday quoting a top police officer close to the inspector general of police.

Why it matters: Boko Haram on February 19, 2018, stormed a school in Dapchi, a town in the northeastern state of Yobe and kidnapped at least 110 girls aged 11-19 years old. The girls were kidnapped from Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, located in Bulabulin, Yunusari Local Government area of Yobe State. The government first tried to deny their kidnap, then lied it had rescued the girls. But as days went on, the darker truth was exposed. President Muhammadu Buhari then admitted the girls had been kidnapped and vowed to rescue them alive.
