A spokesman for Mgbuji community, Chijioke Ogbodo, confirmed the abductions on Monday in a brief interview with reporters.

He decried the constant attack and abduction in the community by terrorists.

‘Since they started attacking our community, neither the police nor the military had arrested one of the terrorists.
