In a statement issued by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the party expressed worry over reports which claim that the students were declared missing after insurgents attacked the Girls Secondary School Dapchi, Yobe state on Tuesday.

“Indeed, we are very disturbed by this ugly development especially given the conflicting reports on the whereabouts of these innocent girls.

“Our party restates that the life, safety and wellbeing of all Nigerians remain of paramount importance to us and we therefore insist that all efforts must be exerted to find these students.

“The PDP is monitoring development on the position of the Nigeria Police investigation of the matter,” the party said.

The party urged the All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled Federal Government to live up to its basic responsibility of protecting lives and property in the country.
