'Not again' - Mahama cries out after Boko Haram invasion in Nigeria

Nearly 50 girls have been captured by the militant group Boko Haram on Monday, February 19 in Dapchi, a suburb of Yobe State in Nigeria.

The aftermath of the attack saw many teachers and students who had run to seek refuge in the bush return unharmed, although about 50 of the students were nowhere to found.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has written on his twitter handle expressing a worried mood at the act by the Boko Haram
