Army Rescues 'More Than 1,000' Boko Haram Captives

The Nigerian Army says it has rescued over 1,000 Nigerians captured by Boko Haram in Malamkari, Amchaka, Walasa and Gora villages of Bama Local Government Area of Borno State. The Army made this announcement on Monday in a statement by Texas Chukwu, a Brigadier-General and Director of Army Public Relations.

It said that the rescue was made by members of the 22 Brigade from the Operation Lafiya Doyle. The Nigerian Army also pointed out that most of the rescued individuals are women and children, as the men have been forced to join the ranks of the Islamic sect’s fighters.

It said: "The operation, which was conducted in conjunction with allies of Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF), rescued the hostages from Malamkari, Amchaka, Walasa and Gora villages of Bama Local Government Area of Borno State. The hostages consisted mainly of women, children as well as some young men who were forced to become Boko Haram fighters. Speaking with one of the rescued victims, Alhaji Gambo Gulumba from Amchaka village, thanked the Nigerian military for showing them love and care.”
