Boko Haram bombs bridge linking Borno, Adamawa..kidnap police officer's family

Gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram terror group in the early hours of Saturday blew up a bridge that links Borno and Adamawa states during an attack on Limankara, a village in Borno State, witnesses and security operatives said.

The gunmen also reportedly abducted the family of a police officer, including his wife and two children; before virtually destroying the village. The incident, according to council officials in Madagali Local Government Area, caused over 3000 persons to flee the village into neighboring communities.

Many, including security officials, believe that the attack on the bridge could be a ploy to scuttle easy access of military troops to the area, where the kidnapped Chibok girls were believed to have been held.
