Gunmen believed to be members of Boko Haram on Monday ambushed vehicles travelling along the Maiduguri-Damaturu Highway and abducted over 15 travellers.
A source told SaharaReporters that the insurgents driving in Hilux vehicles, waylaid a Toyota Hiace Mass Transit bus around 2pm on Monday and took all passengers from the vehicle.
The source said the attackers, who were all armed and some were dressed in military uniforms, later released the bus driver.
SaharaReporters gathered that the spot where the insurgents attacked was not far from a military checkpoint.
Similarly, the terrorists on Monday attacked the 333 Artillery Barracks in Maiduguri, Borno State.
