Information reaching Naija News reveals that Boko Haram insurgents have kidnapped a humanitarian aid worker, Abubakar Garba Idris, in Borno State.
It was gathered that the insurgents who appeared in military uniform invaded some commuters near Matari village between Minok to Jakana road around 8:30 am on Saturday.
The insurgents mounted a roadblock on the highway with three Hilux vans and motorcycles in order to carry out their dastardly actions.
According to a source who spoke with The Cable, Idris was on a private trip from Damaturu, Yobe state capital when he was kidnapped along Damaturu-Maiduguri road.
“While searching the passengers, Idris attempted to throw away his identification card but in the process, one of the insurgents sighted him,” the source said.
“He was then asked to step down from the vehicle along with two other passengers, while the rest of the passengers were asked to continue with their journey. The two other passengers were later released on the ground that they are very poor people and have no use to be abducted.”
This news platform reports that this incident comes a few weeks after a humanitarian worker with the World Food Program (WFP), Emmanuel Peter, was abducted by the insurgents and forced to fake his own death.
