Boko Haram militants kill 32, abduct scores in Nigeria: Report
Maidugura, Dec 18 (IBNS): In a gruesome attack, suspected Boko Haram gunmen have killed at least 32 people and kidnapped almost 200 others, including women and children during a raid on Nigeria's north-east village, media reports said on Thursday.
The news surfaced after four days as the mobile phone network has largely collapsed in the area roughly 70 kilometres (43 miles) south of Maiduguri, said reports.
Although no-one has claimed responsibility yet, the attack resembled that of the Boko Haram.
Since 2009, scores of people have been killed and many have been abducted in Nigeria.
