Members of the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) have abducted one Bulama Geidam, who worked with the General Hospital, Gubio in Borno state.

Describing the incident as “unfortunate and disturbing”, she said that the abducted health worker was among those who remained at their duty posts despite the challenges of insecurity in the area.

“The ministry will write to officially inform all the concerned security agencies, including the Theater Command, Operation Hadin Kai,” she said.

The commissioner prayed for the safe release of the health worker.
