Kachalla Bukar, father of Aisha Kachalla, a missing student of Government Girls Science and Technical College, holds a dress of her daughter in Dapchi, in the northeastern state of Yobe, Nigeria. Bukar's eyes filled with tears when he looked at a blue plastic basket containing his 14-year-old daughter's belongings.

Aisha Kachalla is one of 110 girls abducted on Feb. 19 by suspected Boko Haram militants from her school in Dapchi, a dusty, remote town in the northeast Nigerian state of Yobe.

The basket contains noodles, underwear, clothes and other items her parents packed to make her life at boarding school more comfortable - before it was interrupted by men shouting and brandishing weapons. REUTERS/Afolabi Sotunde

Some pieces of student clothing and a mattress are seen inside a student accommodation at the Government Girls Science and Technical College in Dapchi, the northeastern state of Yobe. The Dapchi abductions may be one of the largest since Boko Haram took more than 270 schoolgirls from the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014. That case sparked an online campaign and spurred several governments into action to try and find them.

Many of those girls remain in captivity, though some have escaped or been ransomed. REUTERS/Afolabi Sotunde

Empty single storey buildings containing classrooms and dormitories were spread across the sprawling site, interspersed with skeletal trees sprouting from red soil. REUTERS/Afolabi Sotunde

Notes written on a blackboard during a class on February 18, 2018 at the Government Girls Science and Technical College in Dapchi, the northeastern state of Yobe. Messages daubed on walls, blackboards and rows of empty bunk beds provide a glimpse of school life while missing ceiling tiles in a dusty classroom hint at the poverty that is rife in northeast Nigeria.
