MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, April 15 (Reuters) - Suspected Islamist insurgents have abducted more than 100 female students from a secondary school in Nigeria's northeast Borno state, a teacher said on Tuesday.

"Over 100 female students in our government secondary school at Chibok have been abducted," Audu Musa, who teaches in another public school in the area, said, adding the abductors were believed to be members of the Boko Haram Islamist sect who have previously attacked schools in the northeast.
