“It is unfortunate that the insurgents continue their nefarious activities on the fringe of Sambisa forests, we have received reports that ISWAP kidnapped at least 15 persons (passengers) near Gumsuri village while allowing two others to go.

“They are desperate to recruit more people into their criminal activities. They deceived people because they dressed in military attire. It is sad and shocking,” a security source said.

Five officials of the Borno State government had earlier been abducted by ISWAP terrorists.

The victims who were supervising the construction of Chibok-Damboa Road, were forcefully taken away on Wednesday.
