He told newsmen that, "this has brought down the 94 missing students recorded at yesterday's headcount to 48 this morning".

In an update, the Yobe State government on Wednesday said 50 out of 926 Dapchi schoolgirls, whose school was attacked by Boko Haram on Monday have not reported back to school.

"Now we just heard that they sighted them somewhere and the military is heading to the scene", he said.

Yobe's education commissioner, Mohammed Lamin, said the school had been shut and a rollcall of all the girls who have returned was being conducted.

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari announced after a weekly cabinet meeting that a government delegation led by the defence and foreign ministers will visit Dapchi on Thursday.

In the same vein, Aishatu Abdullahi, one of the schoolgirls that escaped the attack has claimed that it was not all of the students that were so lucky as she claims that some of the girls may have been taken away by the armed insurgents.

The Boko Haram insurgents attacked Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, on Monday and looted foodstuff, while the staff and students ran into the bush for safety.

We can not say [whether the students were abducted], because the insurgents went into the students' hostel, and many of these students scaled the fence and escaped into the bushes.

They include some 300 children who were among 500 people abducted from the town of Damasak in November 2014.
