NIGERIA -- More horror for those families in Nigeria hoping to get their loved ones returned from Boko Horam. Reports published this week confirmed that the group indeed kidnapped some 40 boys, after persuading the boys and even young teenagers to 'come out for a sermon' preached by none other than Boko Horam.
According to the AP, there was one person who witnessed the raid on the latest village. Bulama Malam told reporters after the attack and his own escape "After telling us that they wanted to preach to us, they began to select young men aged between 12 and 25," Malam said. "I was lucky to escape because they only selected very young and able-bodied men."
