Unconfirmed report said Boko Haram fighters brought the abducted girls back to Dapchi on Wednesday morning, and freed them.

Several residents were said to have fled on sighting the convoy of the terrorists returning to the town.

Bashir Manzo, who heads a parents’ support group in Dapchi, said: “The girls have been brought back. They were brought in nine vehicles and dropped outside the school at about 8am (7am GMT).

“I have the list of the missing girls with me, so I am now heading to the school to take a roll call of the returned girls to determine if any of them is still missing.

“These girls were not accompanied by any security personnel. Their abductors brought them, dropped them outside the school and left, without talking to anyone.

“We will get to know more details from the girls about their predicament while in captivity.”

The insurgents invaded the town on February 19 this year, abducting 110 girls from the school.
