Ninety-four students have been reported missing after suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked a girls’ secondary school in Yobe State on Monday night.

The attack on Government Girls Secondary School Dapchi came after sunset when some of the students were breaking their fast which they usually observe on Mondays. A teacher in the school, who escaped the attack, said the insurgents stormed the school around 7:00 p.m. through the eastern part of the town.

A report by Daily Trust quoted an unnamed source in the school as disclosing that the number of missing students was established in the afternoon after a head count. 

“After the roll call, 610 out the total number of 704 students have returned. We are still searching for the remaining 94 students,” the source reportedly said.

On whether the students were abducted, the source was quoted as saying: “We cannot say, because the insurgents went into the students’ hostel, and many of these students scaled the fence and escaped into the bushes. No one can tell if they are abducted or not.”

The paper reported the source as disclosing that some parents had reported to the school authorities that their children, who fled into the bushes, had returned home safely.

“We are calling on parents to help the school update its list by reporting immediately their children arrived home safely,” he was quoted as saying.

The Yobe State Police Commissioner Abdumaliki Sunmonu said no case of abduction had been established yet but Daily Trust quoted the State Commissioner of Education, Lawan Ali, as saying: “The team is profiling the students to know those who are missing? And, how many of them were able to return or ran home to their families.”
