Abuja [Nigeria], Feb 22 (ANI): 46 students remained missing following an attack by the Boko Haram insurgents on an all-girls college in Nigeria's Yobe state earlier this week, according to the Nigerian Government.
Earlier, close to 100 students were reported to have gone missing after Nigerian authorities conducted a search operation at the Government Girls Technical College in Dapchi area of Yobe, according to the Xinhua.
The state government said in a statement that around 28 students returned safely late on Tuesday, while 20 more returned early Wednesday after they fled the school premises during the attack.
The students and the staff ran into the bushes near the college for safety. There are no casualties reported as of now.
This comes after 22 people were killed in a suicide blast at a crowded near the Konduga town in Nigeria's Borno state.
Also, the group has carried out mass abductions, including the kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls from Chibok in April 2014.
The group is also active in the neighbouring countries of Cameroon, Chad and Niger. (ANI)
