A police commissioner in Nigeria's Yobe state said as many as 111 girls were still unaccounted for after fighters attacked a secondary school in the town of Dapchi on Monday, forcing staff and students to flee.

Saraki in statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja, described the attack as one too many.

Yobe State government has confirmed the abduction of over 50 schoolgirls from the Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC) located in Dapchi, Headquarters of Bursari Local Government area of the state.

Students and teachers of the school are reported to have escaped into surrounding bushes as the terrorists approached the school but up to 90 students have not been accounted for.

Yobe police commissioner Abdumaliki Sunmonu, said the students are being profiled to know who is missing. "We saw some people pushing some of the students to enter their vehicles", she said via phone in her native Hausa language, the Times reports.

"No one can tell if they are abducted or not. We are calling on parents to help the school update its list by reporting immediately their children arrived home safely", he said.

Falling has been rare in her young career, but never have the stakes been this high. "She's an wonderful competitor", Vonn said. But I didn't make any mistakes, I didn't ski stiff, I wasn't nervous, I laid it all on the line and that's all I can do.

It was learned that the insurgents, on arrival, shot sporadically and denoted bombs to scare people away from their path, which also gave the students the opportunity to escape. "There were no soldiers at the time of the invasion". They were shooting guns and everyone was confused; then we started running helter skelter.

Boko Haram dominated headlines years ago, kidnapping over 270 girls at point and ravishing the landscape across Nigeria and nearby Chad and Cameroon.

"We are the ones you are crying about for us to come back".

"Many of us are traumatised; many were even fainting upon hearing any unusual sounds due to the experience".

In January, Boko Haram released a video in which girls claiming to be the remaining Chibok girls appear not to want to return home.
