On Sunday, a source of security services in Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, Nigeria, reported that a total of 63 of the 68 women and girls abducted last June by the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram, were able to escape.
“I just got the alert from my fellow partners on the Damboa district on the return to home of 63 abducted women and girls,” told to reporters, Abbas Gava, a representative of local militias in Borno, which work in collaboration with law enforcement to combat the terrorist group.
Kidnappings were made during a series of attacks, which lasted several days in mid-June, where at least 30 people were killed in the town of Kummabza, Borno.
