The Nigerian military says it has rescued “a dozen” women and children imprisoned by Boko Haram members, in its ongoing efforts to clear the terrorists’ camps.



    Sani Usman, army spokesperson, who made this known in a statement posted on the Army website, said four camps were cleared on Monday.

    “Nigerian troops advancing to clear all known Boko Haram terrorists camps towards Banki, Kumshe axis and Bama axis have cleared four more camps earlier today,” Usman said.

    “They were able to clear the terrorists’ camp at Bolungu 1 and 2, Bula Doye and Cheehi Dare and secured a very important bridge linking the towns of Miyanti and Banki in Borno State.”

    According to the army spokesperson, the clearance by soldiers is aided by aerial supports provided by the Nigerian Air Force and will continue till the insurgency is completely quelled.
