Parents in Nigeria are wondering whether the government can keep their schoolgirls safe
Garba Tela’s wife did not want him to send their daughter to school in Dapchi. She feared Zainab would be an easy target for insurgents.
“They take girls there,” she told him.
Her prediction has proved accurate. Their 14-year-old daughter is one of 110 schoolgirls feared kidnapped by suspected Boko Haram militants in a raid on their school last Monday.
