Almost 300 Women Saved By The Nigerian Army From The Hands Of Boko Haram
Almost 300 women were saved by the Nigerian Army today, after being held in the Sambisa Forest. The group was saved from the area which is packed with the Boko Haram terrorists.
The girls abducted in 2014, from the Chibok school, were not a part of the group of 200 young girls and 93 women saved today. Four Boko Haram camps in the Sambisa Forest were destroyed by the Nigerian army forces, rescuing the women. The rescued women still haven’t been interviewed, said the spokesman of the Nigerian Army. The military’s spokesperson also confirmed that some weapons were seized in the latest operations, from the terrorist camps.
The security forces of Nigeria has reclaimed most of the territory, in the recent months, which was controlled by the Boko Haram terrorists. Even though the official Lagos claimed in October of 2014, that a deal has been struck about a ceasefire and the return of the girls captured from the school in Chibok, the Boko Haram group has denied such a deal existed.
The whole world was shocked by the action of Boko Haram, in which girls were abducted from a school in Chibok, and a global campaign was set online, to help free the young girls from the hands of the terrorists. There was even an official hashtag on social networks – #BringBackOurGirls.
The United States of America and China were among the countries which said that they would help finding and retrieving the abducted girls, but not one has been found yet, despite of several sightings being reported. The security forces of Niger are also fighting Boko Haram, as the government officials of this country released some detail about the clashes between the official troops and the terrorists on an island in Lake Chad, which took place this weekend.
In the attack of Boko Haram on the Karamga Island, 28 civilians were killed, and 46 Niger soldiers laid their lives down in the fierce battle for the island. More than 150 terrorist were also killed.
