Army Neutralizes Boko Haram Terrorists, Recover Arms

Onyema Nwachuku, army spokesman, said on Sunday the freed captives included 54 women and 95 children, according to the NAN news agency.

The Nigerian Army yesterday said its troops rescued 149 persons in the ongoing clearance operation against remnants of Boko Haram insurgents at Yerimari-Kura community in Sambisa axis.

The army on Saturday said its troops killed five Boko Haram insurgents in a gun battle at Barkin-Dutse Area of Adamawa.

He said, "The rescued hostages are now receiving medical attention at the 21 Brigade Medical Center and will be profiled after the medical screening session".

"On Saturday, the troops made further operational exploit into Boko Haram's hideout at Yerimari-Kura, in a deliberate operation to extricate and rescue hostages held by the insurgents in their hideout". Nigeria's military has retaken the northeastern town of Bama from Boko Haram, but signs of mass killings carried out by Boko Haram earlier this year remain.

Boko Haram, whose name roughly translates to "Western education is forbidden", has waged a almost 10-year armed campaign to create an Islamic state in northeastern Nigeria.

The Nigerian military has killed five Boko Haram suspects and arrested two others in a major operation.

"Five Boko Haram terrorists were neutralised while some escaped into nearby caves during the encounter".

He added, "If Boko Haram has been perceived to be as so weakened as it is, we would not be talking about negotiation".

Nigerian troops patrol in Bama on March 25, 2015.

Boko Haram gained global notoriety after its fighters kidnapped 276 schoolgirls in the town of Chibok in April 2014. A month later, the government said 101 had been freed.
