One of the 10 women allegedly abducted by the dreaded Boko Haram sect when it attacked a Military/Police convoy in Borno State about two weeks ago has been identified as Sarah John, popularly known as Awa.

One of her friends, Maria Mark Msheila, posted a photo of the beautiful John on her Twitter handle and also listed the names of the other women kidnapped by the insurgents who had ambushed the convoy along the Damboa Road, about 31 kilometers from Maiduguri, the state capital, on June 20, 2017.

This is what Msheila posted on her Twitter handle:

"This is Awa (Sarah). She's among the 10 women abducted by Boko Haram. Can't still believe it.  Please pray for them."

However, when the news first broke out, the police and Military authorities denied that the incident happened, claiming that the reports were false.

But the sect reacted a few days later by releasing a video showing the kidnapped women who begged the government to come to their aid by rescuing them from the dreaded sect.
