BORNO: Boko Haram abducts seven villagers in Magumeri

SUSPECTED Boko Haram terrorists have abducted seven people from Ngamma community of Magumeri Local Council of Borno State.

The abduction followed the terrorists’ storming of Ngamma on March 2, 2023, in the north-west part of the local council.

A counter-insurgency expert in the Lake Chad region, Zagazola Makama, disclosed, yesterday, in Maiduguri that the terrorists kidnapped three men and four women at gunpoint.

“After the villagers were abducted on Thursday evening, they were ferried away towards Gudumbali, a border community with Niger Republic,” he said.

In another development, a military source in Maiduguri also said that Boko Haram terrorists were exposed to hunger and hardship due to the consistent attacks by the Nigerian military and Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), stating that they were forced to kidnap people for ransom.

According to the source, over 300 Boko Haram terrorists surrendered in a week to Nigerian troops in Konduga, Bama and Mafa local councils in the state.
