 The Islamic State West Africa Province has taken hundreds of hostages in Kukawa, Borno State, AFP reports.

According to sources, who spoke with the news agency, ISWAP, a breakaway group of Boko Haram, on Tuesday night launched an attack on Kukawa town after arriving in the area in about 22 trucks.
