North East: 1000 Children Abducted by Boko Haram Since 2013

Of the 276 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram from the northeastern town of Chibok on April 14, 2014, over 100 are still missing.

Combined Operatives of Operation Lafiya Dole and the Department of State Service (DSS) conducting Counter Terrorism Operations in North Eastern Nigeria have arrested a Boko Haram terrorist who specializes in making Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) for the terrorists group.
