The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the abduction of a Red Cross aid worker in northeastern Nigeria’s Borno State.
The group said it arrested the man after setting up a roadside checkpoint on the road between Kareto and Gubio on Tuesday.
But she did not elaborate on the name of the abductee and did not state any other demands.
In August and September, the group claimed responsibility for attacks on Red Cross vehicles in the area.
IS declared war on aid groups this month, focusing on aid workers in Africa, accusing them of carrying out ideologies that undermine Islam.
She reiterated this ideology in October while calling on the Muslim community to attack agents and aid groups, saying they were distributing “stolen goods from you” to separate people from Islam.
