Troops on Tuesday rescued 212 persons held hostage by Boko Haram terrorists after they cleared remnants of insurgents from some villages in the northern fringes of the Sambisa forest.
They also captured one Boko Haram commander, “Ameer” of Chawa, Amman Judee and neutralized four terrorists, according to a statement by Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, the Director of Army Public Relations.
Usman said the captured terrorists leader was undergoing interrogation, while the rescued persons were being documented and underaged children among them administered oral polio vaccines.
Earlier in the week, troops rescued 30 persons held hostage by the terrorists during clearance operations in eight villages at Bama Local Government Area of Borno.
