Boko Haram insurgents on Wednesday allegedly hijacked a commercial bus and kidnapped the passengers enroute Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
A relative of one of the kidnap victims, Isa Musa, who said the numbers of persons who were abducted could not be ascertained, however, said they were between 10 and 20 people that were kidnapped by the insurgents.
“Boko Haram attacked a commercial vehicle and abducted some civilians – over 10 men and women were abducted,” Musa told Punch.
He stressed that his uncle was on the bus with some other passengers, men and women, about 20 of them, when the incident occurred.
The incident was confirmed by a soldier, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
