No fewer than 15 people have been reportedly kidnapped by insurgents of the Islamic State of West African Province.

According to a security source, the victims were abducted in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State, Daily Trust reported.

Some of the victims include officials of international Non-Governmental Organisations, who had reportedly left Damboa town while heading for Adamawa, on Wednesday.

The source revealed that the insurgents struck near Gumsuri village in Damboa, as they waylaid motorists and forcefully took them into Sambisa forest.

“It is unfortunate that the insurgents continue their nefarious activities on the fringe of Sambisa forests, we have received reports that ISWAP kidnapped at least 15 persons (passengers) near Gumsuri village while allowing two others to go.

“They are desperate to recruit more people into their criminal activities. They deceived people because they dressed in military attire. It is sad and shocking,” a security source said.
