Yobe girls school attack: 48 missing students return - Commissioner

Yobe girls school attack: 48 missing students return - Commissioner”

Sumonu also said that security forces had pursued the insurgents in a new location where they were reported to have been seen.

More than 100 girls are unaccounted for and feared abducted after Boko Haram militants raided a school in Nigeria, police said on Wednesday.

"They ran out of foods and carted way foodstuffs from the school", the CP said.

"God forbids that the presidency, President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerian Army continued to keep the public in suspense any further on what really happened two days ago at the Government Girls Science and Technical Secondary School, Dapchi, in Yobe". Security forces are combing the area, looking for the missing girls.

"He has released a delegation led by the Minister of Defence to Dapchi, to get first-hand information as to what is happening there tomorrow (Thursday) morning".

Some witnesses, however, recalled seeing young girls being taken by the armed militants who also abducted 276 girls from the school in Chibok in April 2014.

Reports had emerged on Tuesday that 94 Nigerian female students were allegedly declared missing after insurgents attacked the Girls Secondary School Dapchi in Yobe State.

"It's a very sensitive situation", he said.

Boko Haram attacked the village, Dapchi, in Northern Nigeria Monday night. "We hope to have concrete information by tomorrow, once we do, we'll let Nigerians know".

The state shares a border with Borno, which is home to the massive Sambisa forest that the Chibok girls were said to have been kept for years after their abduction.

There are reports that more girls have returned to the school after the head count, he said, noting that there were no abductions or deaths inside the school.

"God forbids that we are indeed missing daughters who went to school once again".

Boko Haram has seized thousands of women and young girls, as well as men and boys of fighting age during the conflict, which has left at least 20,000 dead since 2009. We are still searching for the remaining 94 students.

As the issue gained world attention, spawning the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, the then president Goodluck Jonathan was increasingly criticised for his lacklustre response.
