The Yobe police command says a total of 111 students of Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, are still unaccounted for, following a Boko Haram attack in the school on Monday.

This comes shortly after Mohammed Lamin, the state commissioner of education, said 48 missing students had returned.

Lamin had said: “This has brought down the 94 missing students realised at the yesterday headcount to 48 this morning. We are still hopeful that more are returning soon.”

But Abdulmaliki Sumonu, the state commissioner of police, contradicted him by saying 111 girls, not the 94 earlier reported, were still unaccounted for.

Addressing journalists in Damaturu, the state capital, Sumonu said: “815 out of the 926 students were physically seen in the school as of Tuesday.

“There are reports that more girls have returned to the school after the headcount.

The commissioner added there were no reports of abductions nor deaths inside the school.

He added: “I asked the school’s principal if there were abductions or deaths in the school and she said no.

“I am not unaware of the rumours going on, l want to appeal to the press and the society to please cooperate with the security agencies in this situation.”
