Boko Haram militants have reportedly abducted 8 teenage girls in Waranbe village in Gwoza, Borno state.
According to the locals, the insurgents took over all the highways leading Gwoza which is 130 kilometers from Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
They added that the sect is currently in control of the entire area around Gwoza.
This is coming just as the Islamic sect yesterday attacked police and army checkpoints in Gamboru Ngala and Shanni near the Nigerian/Cameroonian border.
There were reports yesterday that the insurgents allegedly killed scores of people during an attack they carried out at a village market in Borno State.
The insurgents have also taken their fight to neighbouring Cameroon where they attacked the town of Kousséri, killing two security guards setting free two of their ,members who were being detained.
