Boko Haram insurgents on Sunday killed 17 people and kidnapped 30 young men and women when they attacked Mafa, in Borno State, according to published a report. Premium Times quoted the caretaker chairman, Mafa Local Government Area of the State, Shettima Maina, as the source of the story. Maina said there has been huge abduction of youth by the implacable insurgents, who continue to attack their communities. He said many people have fled their homes to safety in Maiduguri and its environs due to the rising scale of attacks by the insurgents, who also steal foodstuff and lifestocks after killing their victims.
