Two staff of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), two soldiers, and two workers of Gobe Government House have been abducted by insurgents on the Maiduguri-Damaturu Road.

The victims were traveling in a commercial bus on Monday when the vehicle was intercepted by insurgents between Mainok and Jakana, near Maiduguri, Borno State. Our source gathered that the two government workers were transporting diesel to the Yobe State Liaison Office in Maiduguri.

According to an eye-witness, the bus driver was cautioned by the passengers and people along the road, who suspected that the uniformed men were insurgents, but he ignored their advice.

Another eye-witness said, “He drove straight to the terrorists, who just seized them and took them to a bush. They collected the identity cards of all the passengers, displayed them, and snapped them before posting same on social media.”

Gambo Ahmed, an official of the Yobe State Government confirmed the incident. He said, “They were transporting the diesel, which was loaded in two tanks in a commercial vehicle carrying passengers to Maiduguri. Also, two military and civilian JTF in Maiduguri.”
