NIGERIA: ‘ ARMED MILITANTS ABDUCT 40 PEOPLE AGED 10-23 FROM LOCAL VILLAGE ‘

#AceWorldNews – NIGERIA:Jan.03: Armed militants abducted 40 boys and young men from a remote village in north-east Nigeria on Wednesday.

The raid became known only when residents who escaped from the village informed the authorities on Saturday, AFP reports.

The age of all the kidnapped males is from 10 to 23. Officials suspect the militants were Boko Haram members, who still hold in captivity over 200 schoolgirls abducted last April.
