Wed Mar 14th, 2018 - Benue

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday arrived Yobe state to commiserate with the parents of the abducted Dapchi schoolgirls.

Recall that over 100 school girls were reportedly abducted in their school by Boko Haram terrorists on February 19.

Arguments and comments took over the front pages of newspapers, as anti-Buhari’s summit that the president was supposed to have visited the parents of the abducted girls and cut his share of pain as the president, whereas Pro-Buhari’s aligned their opinions with the presidency’s stand that Buhari after studying the situation will visit all the affected area.

Newsmen reported that the president had in the last five days commenced his visit to all the attacked states. He had visited Plateau state and equally visited Benue on Monday.
