115 Nigeria Schoolgirls Still Missing After Kidnap: Principal

A Nigerian school principal on Thursday denied reports from the military that most of the students kidnapped from her school by Islamists were now safe, saying that only 14 of the 129 taken had escaped.

“The report from the military is not true,” Asabe Kwambura told AFP, referring to an official claim that only eight of the girls were still being held. She specified that Wednesday’s report from the area’s Governor Kashim Shettima that only 14 had safely returned home was “correct.”
