Nigeria: 829 captives of Boko Haram freed by army


At least 829 Boko Haram captives have been freed in the northeastern Borno state as Nigerian troops intensified “clearance operations” across the region once occupied by militants.

Army spokesman Sani Usman said late Thursday that 22 militants were killed Tuesday night in an operation in the Kala Balge area of Borno while 309 persons held captives by the militants were freed.

“In a related development, troops of 3 Battalion with the support of the civilian joint task force also conducted a fighting patrol at Kusumma village, in which they killed three Boko Haram terrorists and captured one alive,” said the army spokesman.
