Over 30 persons were left dead and many others abducted on Sunday as Boko Haram terrorists attacked travelers around 9:50pm in Auno, a village close to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.

Among those abducted were women and children who were loaded into three buses and driven away to yet an unknown location by the terrorist group.

The victims were traveling late when they arrived at a military checkpoint after the 5pm gate closure time. They had to sleep in Auno, a neighbouring village along the Maiduguri-Damaturu highway.

The terrorists burnt 18 vehicles including trailers and buses in the attack.

Governor Babagana Zulum who visited the scene of the gruesome attack condemned the attack on innocent Nigerians. He further noted that the Government of Borno State would assist those whose vehicles and properties were destroyed in the attack.
