Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists on Monday, April 18 abducted five girls and a boy during an evening raid on Yimirmugsa area of Chibok in northeastern Nigeria, HumAngle has learnt.
One person was killed when the terror gang invaded the Yimirmugsa in Kautikari district of Chibok Local Government in southern Borno around 6 p.m according to a local source.
The attack occurred a couple of kilometres south of Kautikari town and east of Pemi. Both towns were targeted in ISWAP raids in Jan.
The communities are also a few kilometres from the Sambisa forest general area where the military had recently raided harbour areas and recovered weaponry and equipment.
The violence in Nigeria’s northeast has led to the death of thousands of people and displaced over two million people. More than 8 million in the impacted states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe are in need of humanitarian assistance.
