by Dare Lawal

The BBC is reporting another sad incident just 24 hours after the bomb blast in Abuja which took several lives. According to the news media, gunmen stormed a boarding school in Borno last night, where they abducted 200 girls. The information was given to the BBC by parents of the abducted kids.

The police has also confirmed the attack and abduction.

See the BBC report below:

Scores of girls have been abducted in an attack on a school in north-east Nigeria, parents say.

Gunmen reportedly arrived at the school in Chibok, Borno state, late last night, and ordered the hostel’s teenage residents on to four lorries.

Parents told the BBC’s Hausa service that at least 200 girls had been abducted. The attackers are thought to be from the Islamist group, Boko Haram.

On Monday, bombings blamed on the group killed more than 70 people in Abuja.

Speaking after the latest attack, a student, who did not wish to be named, told the BBC that she had escaped after seeing her classmates jumping out of the back of a lorry.
