Residents of the village Damasak in northern Nigeria says that at least 400 residents have been captured by the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram.
The villages Damasak and Malam Fatouri which are located close to the border to neighboring Niger has been controlled by the extremist rebel group Boko Haram since last November. Forces from Niger and Chad recaptured the places in early March.
Last week it was reported that at least 100 people were found murdered outside Damasak.
In February the UN Security Council asked the Western and Central African countries to coordinate their military efforts to fight against Boko Haram more efficiently. The African Union (AU) has approved the plan of making a force of 7,500 soldiers from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Benin to fight against the militant jihadists.
