Boko Haram reportedly abducted over 20 girls when they attacked Lassa, Borno, last week.
According to Sahara Reporters, the group reportedly abducted the girls as they rampaged the town.
According to their source, a Mr. Ibrahim;
“They [Boko Haram] abducted more than 20 girls from our town and killed many people, mostly old men and women.”
“They burnt almost half of the town before they left. Those of us who were lucky fled, but they massacred aged ones and younger men they could catch,” the informant stated. He said the town fell to the insurgents because the residents’ appeals to security agencies to deploy more troops and to step up land and air operations were ignored. “That’s why the town is now in the hands of Boko Haram.”
