Glamtush had earlier reported that gunmen stormed the school last Friday and kidnapped the students mainly females.
Security forces were said to have rescued 180 of the abductees but 39 students are still in the den of the kidnappers.
Meanwhile, President Buhari has said he won’t allow terrorists and bandits to destroy the school system.
The President stated this on Saturday, according to a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.
