Boko Haram abduct 185 women and children near Chibok

by James Sambo


According to reports, Boko Haram insurgents kidnapped not less than 185 women and children, and killed 32 people in a raid in Gumsuri, Borno.

The town, which is just north of Chibok, was reportedly besieged by gunmen in pickup trucks on Sunday, December 14, where they began shooting down men before kidnapping women and children.

A local government official said: “They gathered the women and children and took them away in trucks after burning most of the village with petrol bombs.”

Despite the attack happening on Sunday, news of it only began to surface on Wednesday, as the telecommunications towers in the region were said to have been disabled in previous attacks by the Boko Haram.

According to a resident, Umar Ari, who trekked for four days to Maiduguri, ‘The militants stormed the village from two directions, overwhelming local vigilantes who had repelled Boko Haram attacks over the course of the year. Ari said: ‎”They destroyed almost half the village and took away 185 women, girls and boys.”

Another resident, Modu Kalli stated that the militants sprayed machine guns on the village and poured canisters of gasoline on houses before setting them on fire. He said: “We lost everything in the attack. I escaped with nothing, save the clothes I have on me.”
