The Nation checks revealed that 22 women and two men abducted were kidnapped by Boko Haram/ISWAP during the attack.
“We are here in Chibok to commiserate with you, immediate families of our sisters and brothers abducted as well as four of our brothers killed by the Boko Haram terrorists in these unfortunate incidents. We share your pain and we pray this act will not happen again,” Zulum said.
