Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect have abducted 200 students in a raid at a Girls Secondary School in Chibok, a town on the border between Borno and Adamawa States.

The assault on the all-female high school took place on Monday night.

Witnesses said the gunmen, who came in Toyota Hilux vehicles and motorcycles, stormed the town and kept firing sporadic gunshots before setting ablaze several houses and shops.

It was also disclosed that the hoodlums carted away several bags of grains and other food items into waiting trucks and buses as residents fled into bushes and farmlands.

Residents also confirmed that the insurgents did not kill any resident or leaders in the town, but the female students were abducted and taken to unknown destination in the forest.

Report says members of the terrorist group killed a soldier guarding the school and inflicted injuries on several villagers before the heavily armed insurgents ordered the girls into a truck and took them away.

“The raid, which started at about 9:00pm, lasted for six hours.

The Police Commissioner in Borno State, Lawan Tanko, confirmed the kidnapping of the students and told the reporters that additional security agencies had been deployed to the area.

Residents of the area also told reporters that the militants burnt down 100 homes after some residents had tried to resist the raid.
