Islamist militant sect Boko Haram is yet to #BringBackOurGirls and now, a report states they have taken young men.

Punch reports that during a Sunday attack in Doron Baga, Borno community, 100 boys and young men were abducted while 10 were allegedly killed by Boko Haram.

According to the news publication, some of those that fled the area were sighted in Maiduguri on Thursday. They said they had to flee because of the constant attacks by the insurgents.

Halima Alhaji Adamu, one of the displaced persons said six members of Hadejia community in Doron Baga were killed and about 100 young men were abducted on Sunday when the sect launched an attack on their community, displacing thousands who are now refugees in parts of Borno and Yobe states.

Halima also said that she lost her husband in the attack. She claims the insurgents are believed to have abducted the young men in order to forcefully conscript them.

“The attack was on Sunday, in my family they killed six people, I don’t know about the other families but the Hadaijawa community which I belong also had 100 of the abducted by the insurgents.

I think it is better to go and live with family members than opting for camps. We lost everything we have worked for, and I don’t think the camp will be a better place for us.

With family members, we can have the courage to face life again but the camp will continue to make us reflect on our predicament because there is no care as such no focus for one to engage himself or herself into doing something meaningful.”

    My heart bleeds for Nigeria, Lord save us please, I have always heard about signs of the end times, but never visualized it to be this thorough. This Life is just vanity, Vanity upon vanity, at the end of the day, the Gucci shoes, best schools, best education, best jobs would mean nothing.SMH

    This happened on Sunday, so why are we hearing about it now. I think this matter needs to be looked at to see if they were abducted and how many. We are seeing things in this woman’s perspective and she was under duress at the time.

    God, have mercy,this is no good at all.
    Do not even know if the Nigeria Political Leaders are doing anything about bringing the Girls,now the Boys.
    All they have on their mind is the elections and how to mop out money from circulations for their own selfish use.
    It took the President a 100days to meet with the parents of these girls and to add insult to injury,asking them to come to the villa instead of going to meet with them,Do you console with someone from your own domain,or go visiting the Person.
    God is for us, shame shame shame to our selfish and wicked Leaders. God is watching and coming to Judge all. There is GOD.

    My heart just can’t stop aching.. First, it was the girls & now it’s the boys. I guess apparently the Govt. Didn’t do nothing when the first incident happened so after all, Boko Haram will say what can they do now??? Even in the middle of Ebolo crisis mess, Boko haram is still operating! It just can’t get worse..Where can someone begin to start helping Nigeria??. It’s pitiful & pathetic.. God help me if I see Patience crying me a river with a tacky ass video/English on this issue.
