Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), has reportedly abducted five Borno State government officials supervising the construction of Chibok-Damboa road on Wednesday.
The incident occurred near Wovi, a remote village in Chibok Local Government Area.
Gathered information revealed that one of the abducted staff, a driver, escaped unhurt.
“Yes, it is so sad and we are worried about this latest development. The abductions came as a shocker to us. I can confirm to you that they were abducted this morning,” an official told Daily Trust.
