Terrorists Abduct 60 Women In Adamawa

Boko Haram militants have reportedly abducted 60 women from Waga Mangoro and Garta villages in Adamawa State

According to reports, about 60 women have been abducted from Waga Mangoro and Garta villages in Adamawa State by Boko Haram militants.

The terrorists, numbering about 100, attacked the communities on motorcycles and vans on Saturday, October 18, burnt houses and abducted women and young girls, Daily Trust reports.

A resident of Garta, Tizhe Kwada said:

“The insurgents are still in the area. They slit the throats of three men in Garta and abducted many young women. We also heard from residents of Wagga that they killed two men and took 40 women away.”

Kwada further added that the terrorists went from house to house to select the women and then forced their relatives to accept N1,500 and kola nuts as bride price.

The Nigerian government announced a ceasefire deal with Boko Haram which was also supposed to result in the release of the abducted Chibok Girls but recent developments and this subsequent abduction have cast doubts on that possibility.
