The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has called on anyone, “especially the locals, who might have any information that could lead to the location of” the 110 abducted students of the Government Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State, “to bring such information forward to NAF authorities or other relevant security agencies.”

NAF made the request on Sunday in a statement issued by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya.

He released the following telephone numbers for use by any member of the public having information that could help the NAF in its task regarding the missing girls:

+2348122557720

+2348035733438

+2348172843484

+2348058419128

Adesanya said that NAF has meanwhile “deployed additional air assets, including Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms, to the Northeast in a renewed effort at locating the missing Dapchi girls.”

Continuing, he said: “Before now, following confirmation of reports that some of the girls were yet to be accounted for, the NAF had deployed some ISR platforms and helicopters to search for and possibly locate the missing girls as well as the rogue Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs).

“Although these search operations were conducted in a covert manner, for obvious reasons, the efforts did not yield the desired results.

“Accordingly, the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, directed the immediate deployment of additional air assets and NAF personnel to the Northeast with the sole mission of conducting day and night searches for the missing girls.

“It is noteworthy that the renewed efforts at locating the girls are being conducted in close liaison with other surface security forces.”
