Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have abducted three officers of the Nigeria Customs Services in Yobe state.

The three officers, it was gathered, were kidnapped by the insurgents following Wednesday’s attack on Geidam town in Yobe State.

The terrorists allegedly burnt an ambulance belonging to General Hospital Geidam and broke into a shop but no casualty was recorded during the attack.

“My men on the ground informed me that the attack was repelled by the Army ground troop with Airforce support. The information I got was that there was no casualty in the attack,” ASP Dungus informed.

The police spokesman, however, refused to comment on the abduction of the three Customs officers.

A credible source, however, informed the men were in a sad mood following the abduction of their colleagues.

“Honestly we are all in a very sad mood with what happened to our colleagues in Geidam. We are with them in prayers,” a customs officer who spoke with our correspondent in confidence because he is not mandated to do so.
