The Police Spokesperson, Gambo Isah and the Principal of the school, Usman Abubakar confirmed this to Channels Television on Saturday.
This comes amid reports that hundreds were abducted during the raid.
Although the school and police authorities are yet to confirm reports of an abduction or casualties, Abubakar said the management and the police are currently conducting a headcount of the students.
“Precisely we cannot ascertain the number of students kidnapped until later in the day as some of the students are now resurfacing from the nearby bush. We are currently taking the attendance. Some of them went straight to their various houses with their parents calling us that their children are at home,” Abubakar noted.
