Boko Haram kidnapped wives and children of soldiers

Boko Haram

More information is emerging about the real damages caused by Boko Haram militants who launched a daring raid on Nigeria's military barracks in Bama, Borno state.

Latest report said the dare-devil Boko Haram fighters snatched wives and children of soldiers during their three-hour siege on the barracks, located in the border town with Cameroon.

The number of their hostages has not been given by the military authorities, but agency report said the embarrassed military has surrounded the village of Abbaram, near Bama, where they thought the Boko Haram fighters are holding their captives.

Boko Haram fighters stormed the barracks in the town of Bama early on Friday, spraying it with bullets before torching the compound.

In press statements issued yesterday, the military spokesman only confirmed the attacks, but did not give details of casualties, hostages and property damaged.
