The terrorists from the Islamic State of the West African Province, ISWAP, have reportedly abducted five travellers along the Damaturu-Maiduguri Road on Tuesday.

PRNigeria gathered that the incident occurred at about 3 pm at  Tamsukau in Kaga LGA, which was about 7km away from Ngamdu, a Super Camp of the Nigerian Military.

The insurgents who dressed in military uniforms, set up a checkpoint which the commuters mistook to be soldiers.

A credible source told PRNigeria that the terrorists took away three passengers vehicles but later released the vehicles and some passengers, keeping five passengers with them.

The  source said: “The attack was suspected to be carried out by Abou Aseyia who was recently appointed as the Ameerul Fiya (Chief of Militant forces), in charge of Sambisa forest.”
