BBC: Boko Haram Continues to Abduct Women and Girls After 'Ceasefire'

This post originally ran on BBC.

Dozens of women and girls from two villages in Nigeria’s north-eastern Adamawa state have been abducted by suspected militants, residents say.

The abductions have not been confirmed by the authorities, but residents say they took place a day after the military announced it had agreed a ceasefire with the Boko Haram group.

The government hopes the Islamist group will free more than 200 girls seized in April as part of negotiations.

Boko Haram has not confirmed the truce.

Following Friday’s ceasefire announcement, the government said further talks with Boko Haram were due to be held this week in neighbouring Chad.

n a separate incident, at least five people were killed in a bomb blast at a bus station in a town in the northern state of Bauchi.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack.
