Abdu Umar, Borno State Commissioner of Police has confirmed that Boko Haram insurgents abducted two women in Mairari village, Konduga Local Government Area of the State.
Umar, who made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Maiduguri, said the incident occurred on June 7.
“At about 7.30, one Ari Mustapha of Mairari village in Konduga, reported that some gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents invaded his home and kidnapped his two daughters.
“He said they were aged 26 and 30 and that the insurgents stole two bulls and other belongings before fleeing away,” the CP said.
He explained that on receiving the information, a crack-team was deployed on a search and rescue mission around the environment but to no avail.
Umar added that the command would intensify the search until the victims are rescued and reunited with their families.
He urged the people to report any suspicious activities to the nearest security outfit around them.
