Boko Haram Terrorists Kill One, Kidnap 9 in Borno

Reports have just emerged that Boko Haram terrorist group kidnapped nine people in in separate attacks in Borno State, Tuesday.
The terrorists in the two attacks were said to have killed one person and injured two others.
Five members of a family were kidnapped along a highway, 50 kilometres (30 miles) outside the city of Maiduguri as they waited for their car to be fixed on Tuesday, a Vigilante membersaid.
“Five members of a family were abducted today near the town of Dikwa by Boko Haram terrorists,” Babakura Kolo, a member of civilian JTF fighting Boko Haram said .
“The hostages included a woman, her three young daughters and sister,” he said.
Another JTF member Ibrahim Liman gave a similar account, saying the victims were heading to Maiduguri under a military escort when their car broke down and was forced to stop.
“While the driver of the vehicle was trying to fix the car, Boko Haram terrorists appeared from the bush and seized them,” Liman said.
He said the driver however managed to escape.
The 83-kilometre Maiduguri-Gubio highway reopened to motorists last December two years after it was closed following regular attacks.
The highway was reopened following military successes against Boko Haram which saw the jihadists losing territory.
However, the group continues to launch sporadic attacks on motorists without military escorts.
Tuesday’s attack came a day after four farmers were abducted by the Islamists near the town of Konduga, 38 kilometres from Maiduguri, said Kolo.
He said one person was killed and two others injured in the incident.
