Sixty-three (63) women who were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents in parts of Borno state, about two weeks ago, may have escaped captivity and returned  back to their homes, security sources revealed Sunday.

Some witnesses told reporters that the women surprisingly who emerged in large numbers on Saturday must have taken the opportunity of relaxed watch on the camps where they were held hostage to escape.

It is believed that the siege by the insurgents on military and security facilities last Friday on Damboa might have presented the women with an opportunity to flee from their abductors.

It would be recalled that 68 women were allegedly abducted by the  insurgents from Kummabza village in Damboa local government area of Borno state two week ago.

The abduction was denied by the federal government but Borno state government treated the case with caution with the state governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima setting up an inquiry into the abduction.
