Since then hundreds of students have been missing. Nasiru Abdullahi said that according to school records 300 girls are missing, including their 10-year-old and 13-year-old daughters.
Local citizen Musa Mustafa said that armed men also attacked nearby military camps and security posts so that the soldiers could not retaliate. Mustafa claimed that the people of the attacking group remained in school for hours. However, there is no information regarding any casualties.
