Parents of school children in northern Nigeria say more than 100 of their girls are missing after extremists from the terror group Boko Haram attacked the school and kidnapped the girls.
The number of missing girls was announced Thursday after government officials in the state of Yobe acknowledged at least 50 young women remained unaccounted for in the wake of Monday's attack.
A parent of one of the missing girl's named Bashir Manzo told The Associated Press that the parents have compiled a list of 101 missing children. Manzo also said they presented that list of missing children to the governor.
Limited access to the area where the school and families are located has complicated the response to the attack and led to conflicting reports since Monday.
Four years ago, Boko Haram abducted 276 girls from a boarding school in Chibok. Some of the girls escaped and others were released through negotiations but around 100 remain with their captors.
Accounts from women who lived with similar Islamic terror groups recount being made into sex slaves and were frequently physically and sexually abused or even killed.
