Boko Haram Kidnaps 50 More Women in Nigeria | News | teleSUR

The extremist Islamic group has been gaining ground lately taking several towns throughout the states of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa.

Boko Haram militants have kidnapped another 50 women over the weekend in Nigeria's northeastern state of Adamawa, media reports confirmed on Monday.

According to the Nigerian Daily Post, Boko Haram foot soldiers stormed Gulak town on Saturday and took the women as they were praying at a preaching ground.  Married women were amongst the victims this time, according to residents who managed to escape.

Boko Haram – the extremist Islamic group whose name loosely translates as “Western education is forbidden” – has been trying to declare its own caliphate in Nigeria. 

The group has a long history in the region, however it upped its aggressions in April when it kidnapped 200 schoolgirls and attempted to convert them to Islam, threatening them with their lives. The girls have since been released.    

Over the past two weeks, the extremist group has taken towns throughout the states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa burning churches and government buildings, killing civilians or forcing them to flee in fear.

The Nigerian military has been striking back using both war planes and ground troops to defeat the militants.  They reportedly killed 200 Boko Haram members in a battle on Friday in Konduga in the state of Borno.

Army reinforcements have since been sent to Adamawa, reports Reuters.
