The Amnesty International (AI) on Friday, said that the Boko Haram terrorists have abducted over 400 people including women and children in Borno State this week, the Global News reports.

The President of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu confirmed the abduction on Friday but did not specify the number of victims.

According to Amnesty International, the victims are Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) from Babban Sansani, Zulum, and Arabic IDP camps in Gamboru Ngala, Borno State.

According to HumAngle, Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum stated on Thursday that the government has not yet determined the exact number of abducted persons.

The mass kidnapping took place during the same week that terrorists abducted over 200 pupils from a public school in Kaduna State.

The Director of Amnesty International Nigeria, Isa Sanusi, said “The latest mass abductions clearly show President Bola Tinubu and his government have no effective plan for ending years of atrocities by armed groups and gunmen that are increasingly having a free reign across many parts of Nigeria. Whatever security measures being implemented by President Tinubu and his government are clearly not working.”
