The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the abduction of a Red Cross aid worker in northeastern Nigeria’s Borno State Naija News reports.
The group said it abducted the man after setting up a roadside checkpoint on the road between Kareto and Gubio on Tuesday.
But it did not elaborate on the name of the abductee and did not state any other demands.
In August and September, the group claimed responsibility for attacks on Red Cross vehicles in the area.
IS declared war on aid groups this month, focusing on aid workers in Africa, accusing them of carrying out ideologies that undermine Islam.
It reiterated this ideology in October while calling on the Muslim community to attack agents and aid groups, saying they were distributing “goods stolen from you” to separate people from Islam.
