Modu Usman, another source who escaped from the town told Tribune that he heard some girls crying from his hideout in the bush giving credence to the fact that a number of missing students may still be in the bush as at yesterday.
The Commissioner for Education in Yobe state, Mohammed Lamin, has disclosed that Government Girls Secondary School, GGSS Dapchi, in Bursari local government area, recently attacked by Boko Haram terrorists, has registered 28 missing students that returned on Tuesday night with 20 others received from neighbouring Magwaram village.
"They ran out of foods and carted way foodstuffs from the school", the CP said.
She wondered if the Buhari led Federal Government did not learn anything from the incident of the abducted Chibok girls.
"Our girls have been missing for two days and we don't know their whereabouts", Abubakar Shehu, whose niece is among those missing, told AFP.
Up to 111 girls were unaccounted for after the terrorist group stormed the Government Girls Science Secondary School in Dapchi on Monday evening, Yobe state police commissioner Abdulmaliki Sumonu said.
"I can not say how many of us (were involved) but I know that our game master was able to escape with about 60 students into the bush".
The police chief told reporters that security forces had pursued the insurgents in a new location where they were reported to have been seen.
Boko Haram attacked the village, Dapchi, in Northern Nigeria Monday night.
Aid groups say Boko Haram has kidnapped thousands more adults and children, many of whose cases are neglected. "We have the feeling they were taken by the gunmen".
"Our party restates that the life, safety and well-being of all Nigerians remain of paramount importance to us and we, therefore, insist that all efforts must be exerted to find these students", the statement read in part.
In Chibok, the military initially claimed the students had all been found but was forced to backtrack when parents and the school principal said otherwise. We got terrified by the gunshots and scaled the fence, we are not sure if they abducted some student but we suspected they did because they were calling some students when I ran away.
"They need money for arms, ammunitions, vehicles, to keep their army of fighters moving across the borders", Amaechi Nwokolo, from the Roman Institute of International Studies, said.
