The two businessmen (names withheld), it was learnt, were taken away in an unmarked two Toyota Hilux to an unknown destination along the Nigerian border with Cameroon at 7.34pm by the heavily armed abductors.
Gamboru is a border town with Cameroon, and 138 kilometres northeast of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
An eyewitness who spoke on phone with journalists from Gamboru on Thursday, said “some hoodlums burst into the market square in Hilux vehicles, and told the people not to be panic.
“They subsequently went for the two businessmen who they bundled into their vehicle and sped off without killing any person at the market square and mosque.”
