Boko Haram releases abducted bride, bridesmaids after they were captured along Maiduguri-Damaturu highways


It came as a surprise to many nigerians as Boko haram terrorists released a bride and bridesmaid as they were abducted along Maiduguri-Damaturu highways.

It was reported that the bride’s entourage were travelling to Damaturu to meet the family of the groom after the wedding ceremony was conducted in Maiduguri on Friday, February 26, PR News reports. The news outlet said before the victims were released, the terrorists screened their mobile phones.

A friend of the family, Malam Gimba said the bride, the bridesmaids, and the entire entourage were released without molestation or ransom payment.

However, they trekked to Mainok where they were picked up by the groom’s family and security personnel.

Meanwhile, in another heartbreak for Nigerians, some innocent people have once again been kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents. Those kidnapped are some passengers along the Damaturu-Maiduguri road. They were abducted on Thursday, February 25, in the Jakana axis of the road.

The terrorists had earlier attacked the army’s 28 task force brigade in the area but were repelled. Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Nigeria's former military head of state, General Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd), has said dialogue is not the best option to end armed banditry in Nigeria, especially the northern part.

The former military leader stated this when a delegation of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) visited him at his residence in Minna, Niger state, Channels TV reported.

According to the retired general,the best way to solve Nigeria’s banditry and other security issues is to first make sure that the crimes are not committed.
