Nigerian Military Rescues 160 More Women and Children from Boko Haram Camp

Recommended Posts

 

About 160 more Boko Haram captives have been freed by Nigerian troops. A Nigerian military spokesman reported Thursday (April 30) that around 60 women and 100 children had been rescued from the terrorist group, only days after a rescue operation freed 293 hostages from the Sambisa Forest.

 

Spokesman Sani Usman said, "We are still working to verify the actual number of the rescued hostages, but I can say they include around 60 women and 100 children.”

 

"Many of those kidnapped have undergone psychological trauma and indoctrination," he continued.

 

CNN reports one Nigerian soldier and one female captive died during the operation.

 

Tuesday’s operation freed 200 children and 93 women from Boko Haram. They have reportedly received food and hygiene supplies but have not had access to health workers yet.

 

Amnesty International’s Africa director celebrated the hundred of hostages that were freed this week, but reminded the military how many abductees remain.

 

"This development is just cause for celebration and undoubtedly an immense relief to the women, girls and their families. But this is just the tip of the iceberg; there are thousands more women and girls, and men and boys who have been abducted by Boko Haram," Netsanet Belay said.
