Over 100 female students were abducted by the deadly Boko Haram sect from the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State.

The students who  were  part of the 250 students boarded at the school   were sitting for the ongoing WAEC/SSCE.

The sect,  according to sources attacked Chibok town, a distance of 141 kilometres from the capital of the troubled Borno state, Maiduguri at about 10pm Monday burning down houses and shops at will.

They were also alleged to have carted away food items and vehicles and killing undisclosed number of people in the town.

The insurgents who were said to have a field day went to   all female boarding schools, abducting over 100 students from the 250 female students who were lodged in the hostels for their final examinations.

According to a resident of the town, who does not want his name in print,  the attackers who came in large numbers attacked the community and burnt down  several houses.

He revealed that the Government Girls Secondary Chibok was also attacked and 100 students of the school writing their senior secondary school certificate examination were abducted by the attackers.

Another resident of the town, Amos Ahmadu, who spoke on phone to journalists in Maiduguri said the attackers collected large amount of food stuff from residents before fleeing the community which they set ablaze.
