Nigeria kidnapping: 60 girls and women, 31 boys said to be abducted

Boko Haram suspected in the kidnap of 91 people — 60 women and girls and 31 boys.

At least 91 people – more than 60 women and girls, and 31 school boys – were abducted last week by suspected Boko Haram militants, two months after the terror group kidnapped more than 300 schoolgirls in northeastern Nigeria, according to witnesses.

Local media reported about 60 people were abducted in attacks on villages south of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, between Thursday and Saturday.
