TWENTY MORE WOMEN DISSAPEAR IN NIGERIA
By: Nokwazi Qumbisa
Reports have surfaced that 20 more women have disappeared from a Northeast Nigeria town of Chibo, the very town where Boko Haram militants kidnapped over 300 schoolgirls in April.
It’s said that Boko Haram men came on Thursday to the area carrying guns and forced the women to board their vehicles; during this three men who tried to intervene were also taken hostage. Thereafter they were driven to a remote area called Borno State.
Eye witness and member of the group fighting against Boko Haram attacks, Alhaji Tar said that at Garkin Fulani settlement “We tried to go after them when the news got to us about three hours later, but the vehicles we have could not go far, and the report came to us a little bit late.”
In the same week, soldiers allegedly killed over 50 Boko Haram militants on Saturday night from entering the villages in Borono and the bordering Adamwa state. As they were on a mission to attack, said spokesperson Chris Oluklade in a detailed email sent to defence spokesperson Chris Oluklade.
However, Nigerians have been complaining that they are not protected by the Nigerian security forces, as they feel they have to fight off attacks by Boko Haram by themselves.
