Boko Haram Reportedly Abduct 97 Young Men in Borno
Indications emerged on Thursday that members of the Boko Haram insurgents group, abducted 97 persons from Doron Baga in Kukuwa local government area of Borno State
There were fears also that the abducted young men were being forcefully conscripted by the insurgents.
A source from the besieged village disclosed that the militants stormed the village on Sunday, killed at least 10 persons, took away some boys and young men while others who were lucky fled into the bush, where they spent several days.
Some of those that fled the area said in Maiduguri on Thursday that they had to flee the area because of the constant attack by insurgents.
A 42-year-old mother of seven, Halima Adamu, lost six family members in the attack. “The attack happened on Sunday in our village Doron Baga. The Boko Haram fighters came at 5:30 p.m. They opened fire, shooting into our houses and killed more than 30 people. There was confusion everywhere, and they started taking our boys away. 97 of our husbands and boys were forcefully taken away.”
Another resident, Fatima Suleiman, said her husband was among those taken away. “They were shooting at everybody, even children. They were shouting ‘Allah akbar!’ They were many of them,” she told reporters at the Borno motor park.
