Suspected Boko Haram Insurgents Abducted 40 In AdamawaFeatured, Latest News, News Thursday, October 23rd, 2014
Barely a week after the announcement by the Nigerian Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh, confirming the militant ceasefire with the Government, the insurgents have struck again as not less than 40 girls have been abducted, in Adamawa state, North Eastern Nigeria.
The abduction which occurred Thursday, followed another attack by the insurgents in the last one week. About 60 women were purportedly abducted from two different towns, within the local government areas under the control of the militants.
Besides the latest attack, suspected Boko Haram insurgents have also attacked and killed many in the various communities, including Damboa in Borno state.
Badeh announced last Friday that the insurgents have signed ceasefire with the military on behalf of the Federal Government – to hands off weapons and release over 200 girls, abducted over six months ago in Chibok, in Borno state.
