In heart-wrenching videos that were shared on Facebook by veteran journalist Babajide Kolade-otitoju, some of the parents of the abducted students could be seen crying uncontrollably.
The chairman of the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. John Hayab, said as at Friday, there were 180 boarding students in the school.
According to him, 26 students have returned and he is hopeful that more will escape from the bandits.
