Her words: “The attack was on Sunday, in my family they killed six people including my husband. I don’t know about the other families but the Hadaijawa community which I belong also had 100 of the men abducted by the insurgents”.
Also, the Nigerian army said it intercepted a group of about 51 youths travelling from Maiduguri to Abuja at about 3am on Wednesday August 14th 2014.
In a statement released by the Defence Headquarters, the youths travelled in three 18-seater buses with a woman who claimed she was transporting them to Abuja on the orders of Borno state Government.
The press statement from the Defence Headquaters reads:
Officers of the Special Task Force are currently trying to unravel the motive for the movement of some youths from Maiduguri heading to Abuja at about 3am when they were accosted in Plateau State on Wednesday.
Numbering about 51, the youths were under the guidance of a lady as they were being conveyed in 3 eighteen-seater mass transit buses when they were intercepted along Babale in Plateau state as they journeyed from Maiduguri to Abuja in the night.
During the interrogation that followed, they claimed they were being conveyed to Abuja on the directives of a Borno State Government official to meet their relatives for assistance in an economic empowerment programme. The official is yet to respond to series of efforts to verify the claims.
The issue is being investigated to ascertain the genuine mission of such a team of young people moving in the night more so as they have made contradictory statements as to the sponsorship of their mission to Abuja. The movement is being assessed in the light of the security situation and the suspicious claims of the youths.
New reports show that Chadian troops have rescued most of the 100 men abducted from Daron Baga, after they carried out a military operation against the insurgents.
Also, 17 Boko Haram terrorists killed, as JTF raid camp in Daron Baga on Friday August 15th 2014, reports reveal.
