Troops have rescued another 212 persons held hostage by the terrorists after they cleared remnants of insurgents from some villages in the northern fringes of the Sambisa forest on Tuesday.

They also captured one Boko Haram commander, “Ameer” of Chawa, Amman Judee and neutralised four terrorists, according to a statement by 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.
