At least 16 female residents of Adamawa State were abducted Wednesday by suspected Boko Haram militants, the police and local officials said.

Police said a team of officers had been deployed to the area to search for the abducted persons.

Those abducted include 14 women and two girls. They were seized in Sabongari Madagali, in Madagali Local Government of the state, a federal lawmaker representing the area said.

Local sources said some of the women were taken from a nearby bush where they went in search of firewood.

Others were seized from a nearby river while fishing.

A source said two women managed to escape the abductors by pretending to have drowned.

“The two women who are in real state of trauma told us that the suspected Boko Haram insurgents had a field day carting away the women when their escorts ran away for their dear lives,” the source said.

He said two vigilante operatives who escorted the women to the bush fled on sighting the heavily armed men, who arrived good numbers.

“They left the women to their own devices as the gunmen were left unchallenged leading to the abduction of the said women,” the source said.

Confirming the incident, the member representing Michika/ Madagali Federal constituency, Adamu Kamale, said, “I just received the shocking news to the effect that about 16 women have been abducted by Boko Haram.

“We have been witnessing pockets of attacks contrary to the belief that security has been fully restored in the area. As a member of NASS( National Assembly), I have been calling for the deployment of security personnel but to no avail as the government seems to have relegated our concerns to the background”.

The Police Public Relations Officer of Adamawa, Othman Abubakar, said on learning about the development, the command deployed officers to the affected area.

He said police were working “round the clock to track down the abducted women and girls”.

    • Sparzo

      Either you are a liar, like Otile, or simply find the pages of PT , like the spare parts biafrans
      difficult to understand.

      • Otile

        In an attempt to defend corrupt practices of your god Imam Mohamed Buhari, you have lost coherence. Try again.

        • Sparzo

          Love made in heaven. Two pathetic serial liars. Amen.

          • Otile

            You are still incoherent.

        • Sparzo

          Bye Bye Fuckwit.

      • Shola

        • Sparzo

          Is that why you are using a pretty girl’s handle.
          Shame on you.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Thank goodness that senile, illiterate certificate forger and perjurer MuhamMADu (alias Customs and Exercise, French Franc, Deutch Mark and President Michelle of Western Germany) Buhari has technically defeated Boko Haram o.

  • monicaterna4u

    Before he became president, he told Nigerians that he would ‘finish boko haram in 100 days…’ After becoming president, he actually said he would ‘flush boko haram out of Nigeria…’ It’s been months now and we have not seen any miracle or rather, MAGIC… Hahahahahahaha Change INDEED!

  • mark10

    hmmmmm but I tot they say boko haram have finally stop….. were is lai Mohammed, let him come n tell us lie again

    • Otile

      Who believes the word of Lair Mohammed? If Mohamed can easily deceive many people that he had good WAEC when he had none what else do you expect?

  • Intrepid

    A country whose foundation is grounded on injustice, will continue to run round the evil cycles of darkness, terrorism, blood letting, rape, kidnapping, intellectual flight, mutual animosity, corruption, tribalism, nepotism etc. until the satanic forces holding this flawed foundational structure is excorcised by the power of the almighty.

  • Otile

    Islam is a religion of toto. See how the Muslims are carting women away to sleep with.

    • Sparzo

      You really are disgusting Otile.n What a gutter mind?
      You need your mouth washing with real strong Izal anti virus.
      It is infected.

      • Otile

        You people coordinated this kidnapping well. First you ceased light, then under cover of darkness you kidnapped dozens of women to sleep with. Haba, Islamic Boko Haram, Islam is a religion of deception.

        Sparzo, I don’t know why you defend the evil and corrupt practices of your religion.

        • Sparzo

          You really should be asking Mujaheed Alhaji Asari Dokubo that.
          Personally, I think religion is the root of all evils, since the crusaders invented Banking,
          and the Rothschilds of course.

          • Otile

            Forget events of the middle ages. We are talking about you people’s present quest for toto. Why do you kidnap, rape, and do violence to women? There is more to life than toto.

          • Sparzo

            The schools colleges, hospitals and universities he has built every where but in the se/ss are,C21st.
            These ss/se muslims na wa for them. real confused people.

  • GreatD

    Tell me what your clueless Jonathan would have done better. You cannot succeed to render PMB government incredible like that of your paid master by unnecessarily magnifying scores of Boko Haram attacks. Your clueless, paymaster had gave them free days too long that their immediate extermination is not visible but will eventually happen with the commitment of PMB government to deal with the group.

    Foreign Observers Confirm Dakuku’s Security Shot Wike’s Chief Of Staff, Killed Aide.

    Foreign election observers who came to Nigeria to monitor the March 19, 2016 legislative rerun elections in Rivers State have indicted an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Dakuku Peterside in the murder of the ordlie of the chief of staff to the Rivers State Governor, Chief Emeka Wogu.

    The Trent first broke the news that Dakuku’s security detail had opened fire on Wogu’s SUV on Sunday. Our reporter who was monitoring the elections from a location in Old GRA, Port Harcourt heard the gunshots in the estate and launched an investigation.


    Hon. Afo Guarantor Akanni of Ado Ekiti today has just been released by the tyrannical regime of Muhammadu Buhari in Nigeria. He was held under lock and latch without access to medical treatments, his medications, his lawyers and family for several weeks.

    And Nigerians asked what what his offense was. No one from Buhari’s Gestapo like EFCC could provide an an answer, but one of them who begged to go unanimously said Buhari got angry with his criticisms against his government. That’s all!…

  • Otile

    Sparzo the Islamist, your people are cursed by God for ever, hence you became wanderers.
    There is no other place on God’s earth herdsmen are roaming around
    scavenging for grass except your people, even the Maasai Mara of Kenya
    have settled down without depending on their government to settle them.
    When will you behave yourselves by settling down, and stop ravaging
    other communities raping their women, stealing their belongings among
    other crimes?

    Why would anyone go back to Madagali when Michika is still a safe haven for the sect. You can’t resettle the displaced citizens without annihilating Bokoharm.
