Rampaging Boko Haram insurgents have abducted three young women from Magar village in Madagali area of Adamawa State.
Magar is a remote village about 25 kilometers from Gulak town, the administrative headquarters of Madagali Local Council.
The area had fallen under the control of Boko Haram before its liberation by the military in 2015.
Local sources told DAILY NIGERIAN that a small number of armed men attacked the village on Friday afternoon and took away the young women.
“The insurgents had struck again, this time on the outskirt of the town. They abducted three young women,” said a resident who simply identified himself as Kumangar.
Madagali Local Government Chairman, Yusuf Muhammad, confirmed the abduction to our reporter, saying the women were picked by the insurgents while working on their farms on the outskirts of Magar.
He disclosed that soldiers and local hunters had been mobilised to track down the abductors with a view to rescuing the victims.
The spokesman of the 28 Task Force Brigade in Mubu, Badare Akintoye, could not be reached on phone for comments as at the time of filing this report.
