This will not be the first time Boko Haram terrorists will be abducting and killing it’s victims, as the group which are now two different insurgency groups in their quest to continue their fasle agitations have continued to target girls and women as soft targets. Although the Nigeria Military have in the last few years degraded the group they have resorted to abductions as a means to survive, and this is just one of those.
