According to reports, suspected members of the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, have abducted close to 200 students in a daring raid at the Girls Secondary School in Chibok, a town on the border between Borno and Adamawa States.
The group’s assault on the all-female high school took place on Monday night. A security source disclosed that members of the extremist Islamist group killed a soldier guarding the school and inflicted injuries on several villagers before abducting the students.
The police commissioner in Borno State, Lawan Tanko, confirmed the kidnapping of the students to reporters in the state.
The mass abduction lasted between 9pm -3am as sect members made several trips picking and choosing their victims out of the 250 students enrolled in the school.
