It was gathered that about 100 persons were abducted during a
Sunday attack on the village where over 10 persons were killed.
A source, who spoke to journalists in Maiduguri, said the
insurgents attacked the Doron Baga on Sunday evening and took
away some boys and young men.
Some of those that fled the area that were sighted in Maiduguri on
Thursday, said they had to flee the area because of the constant
attacks by the insurgents.
One of the displaced persons, Halima Alhaji Adamu, said six
members of Hadejia community in Doron Baga were killed and
about 100 young men were abducted on Sunday when the
members of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram launched an attack on
their community displacing thousands who are now seeking
refuge in some parts of Borno and Yobe states.
She lamented that she also lost her husband in the attack.
She claimed that the insurgents are believed to have abducted the
young men in order to forcefully conscript them.
According to her, several other communities within Doron Baga
and around have also lost many as well as others who were
abducted by the insurgents.
She said, “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
Speaking on why she and the rest of her family could not take
advantage of the refugee camps established in Maiduguri, she said
“we are going to our family members in Gashua.”
“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,” She added.
