John Kwaghe, who witnessed the attack and lost three daughters to the abductors, and Dorathy Tizhe, who lost two, said the attackers came late in the night, forcing all the women to go with them, then later releasing the older ones.

- Here are the best times to watch tomorrow’s partial solar eclipse
On Thursday, a partial solar eclipse is expected to darken the skies above. A partial solar eclipse occurs when the sun and moon are not exactly in line and the moon only partially obscures the sun.
