Over 10 vehicles including buses carrying passengers along the Maiduguri-Damaturu road were intercepted yesterday by the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists and ISWAP at about 3:00pm around Jakana village. Report says many passengers were reportedly abducted.
Reports show that many families were thrown into confusion as many others rushed to Borno Express terminus as they could not connect with family members that travelled on Monday about the period the incident happened.
An elderly man who spoke to newsmen and identified himself as Malam Usman said his daughter who travelled about the same time could not be reached on the phone and her belongings were not among those brought back to the station.
“People have come and collected their family members’ bags and boxes, but I am yet to see my daughter. I am confused. I could not reach her on phone either. I hope she is not among those they were saying the terrorists abducted,” he said.
