More Women Enslaved by Boko Haram
In the name of Islam:
SCORES of women and children in northern Nigeria have been abducted by militants, only a day after the military declared a ceasefire with the Boko Haram Islamist group.
As reports of the kidnappings emerged,fresh violence rocked the town of Azare in Bauchi state.
A police spokesman for the state, Mohammed Haruna, said a bomb blast at a bus station in Azare killed five people, with their bodies “burnt beyond recognition,” and injured 12 others.
No-one claimed responsibility, but Bauchi has been attacked repeatedly throughout Boko Haram’s brutal five-year uprising, which has left more than 10,000 people dead.
