Boko Haram Abducts Seven In Fresh Attack
Seven persons have reportedly been abducted by Boko Haram terrorists following an attack in Ngamma village in Borno state.
According to Zagazola Makama, a counter insurgency expert in the Lake Chad region, the insurgents invaded a village on Thursday, kidnapping three men and four women at gunpoint.
A source who spoke with Makama said the terrorists took the victims away through the Gudumbali axis, which is the headquarters of Guzamala LGA in Borno where members of the Islamic States of West African Province (ISWAP) are active.
The source also added that the insurgents are yet to contact the families of the victims to demand ransom for their release.
The publication said a security source who confirmed the development noted that the Nigerian Army has intensified efforts in the fight against terrorists in the area.
The source said the terrorists are now facing hardship and hunger, forcing them to succumb to kidnapping for ransom.
More than 300 Boko Haram terrorists are believed to have surrendered to the troops of the Nigerian military in Mafa, Konduga and Bama within the past week.
