Not Again! Boko Haram Abducts 103 Girls From High School In Borno State

Suspected members of Boko Haram sect yesterday while the country was still mourning the death of those killed at Nyanya motor park blast, abducted 103 students in a daring raid at the Girls Secondary School in Chibok; a town on the border between Borno and Adamawa States.

A soldier guiding the school was killed, while several villagers were wounded in the process, before they made away with the girls. The police commissioner in Borno State, Lawan Tanko, has confirmed the incident. Very sad. I don’t know if they intend to train these girls as well, but from previous reports, most of them are kept and used as sex slaves. 

Meanwhile, Premium Times Nigeria reports that, security agents have ordered lawmakers and other staffers to immediately vacate the National assembly few minutes ago after reports emerged that an explosive material had been planted in the building. The National Assembly is located within the Three Arms Zone, Nigeria’s most fortified district, which lies a short distance from Nyanya, the scene of Monday’s bombing.
