The EU stated this in a statement by its press Officer, Mr. Modestus Chukwulaka, on Thursday, in Abuja.

Some schoolgirls were reportedly abducted on Wednesday by Boko Haram insurgents at Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state.

“Targeting children and abducting young girls as they seek to attend school is an attack on our common humanity.’’

The organisation sent its solidarity with the affected families, and the people of Nigeria.

“The girls deserve freedom and a chance to shape their own future.

“The EU remains committed to supporting the Government of Nigeria in its fight against terrorism and all forms of criminality.

“We stand resolute to continue our humanitarian and development work, including the rights and protection of girls.”
