Nigerian Military Reportedly Rescues 178 from Boko Haram

Nigeria Boko Haram crisis: Army rescues 178 people

The Nigerian military says it has rescued 178 people from the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in northern Borno state. In a statement released on Sunday, it said that 101 of those freed were children and a further 67 were women. The statement did not say if the girls abducted from a school in Chibok in April 2014 were among them.

The military also says that a Boko Haram commander was captured and several camps were cleared. Boko Haram has killed some 5,500 civilians in Nigeria since 2014. More than 200 of the Chibok girls are still missing, more than a year after they were kidnapped from their school in northern Nigeria.
