Abuja - Seven more missing students from Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok in the Borno State have escaped from captivity.
Governor Alhaji Kashim Shettima disclosed this ahead of Monday.
“Between last night and this evening, seven more girls escaped from captivity, bringing to 52 the number of those with us out of 129 students that were at the hostel on the day of that attack. This means 77 students are yet to be found,” the governor said.
He called on parents and guardians to return any student that might have ran home on the day of that attack to ascertain the number of missing students.
The governor added that so much is being done by the rescue teams.
“There is very high commitment on the part of the Federal, State and Chibok local government authorities working for the freedom of these innocent daughters of ours that are future leaders and mothers of future leaders.”
Suspected Boko Haram members kidnapped the female students last week.
