Nigerian Govt Revises Number of #DapchiGirls - Again

Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed says a total of 111 girls were abducted from a school in Dapchi, with one student not reflected on the school's original list of 110 names. He says two other people - not students of the college - were captured, bringing the the total number of abducted people to 113. "So far, a total of 107 persons, comprising 105 Dapchi schoolgirls and the two non-students, have been released," he said. It had earlier been reported that Leah Sharibu, who was still being by Boko Haram, had been released but that was later denied.
