At least 17 people were killed and dozens abducted by suspected Boko Haram militants

"At least Seventeen persons were killed by the assailants after last Thursday's attack on Ndongo community," Alhaji Shettima Maina, head of Mafa Local Government, told journalists in Maiduguri. "We buried the remains of the victims in Mafa on Friday."

The attack marks the latest in a series of attacks by suspected Boko Haram militants in northern Nigeria despite the announcement of a ceasefire by the Nigeria government and ongoing negotiations with the group in neighboring Chad.
