About half the Dapchi girls abducted from the Government Girls Technical College, in Yobe State are said to have been transported across the border into Niger Republic.
The girls were captured from their school in Dapchi by suspected Boko Haram terrorists on Monday.
Daily Trust reported that the girls were split into two groups; one was left in an enclave in northern Borno State and the other taken to a village in Niger Republic.
It was gathered that the girls were abducted by the Musab Albarnawi faction of the Boko Haram which is loyal to the Islamic State of West Africa.
The group had lost grounds along the shores of the Lake Chad, the same way Abubakar Shekau, the factional leader of the group suffered was sacked from the Sambisa Forest base following onslaught by the Nigerian military.
“The girls ferried across a shallow river and are held in the border town of Duro in Niger Republic,” the source, who does not want to be named, said.
“The second batch has been moved to Tumbun Gini area of Abadam LGA of Borno,” he added.
Abadam, with headquarters at Malam Fatori is three kilometres from Bosso Niger Republic.
The military was not available for comments last night.
