Boko Haram Attacks Borno, Abducts Women

Some women have been reportedly abducted along Pulka road in Gwoza local government area of Borno state.
Report has it that the victims were on their way to a neighbouring local government on Tuesday evening when the insurgents attacked the bus they were in.
Muhammed Buba, one of the passengers on a vehicle that was attacked, reported that many people sustained injuries in the attempt to escape adding that there were sporadic gunshots from different directions during the attack.
Idrissa Hamisu, another victim, said the insurgents came in two Toyota Hilux buses but were engaged in serious gun battle with troops in the area.
“Many who were caught in the attack were women who lacked the strength to run away. The incident occurred around on Tuesday,” he said.
“I don’t know if the soldiers were able to save the passengers but many women were abducted in the attack,” he said.
