LAGOS Nigeria (AA) - Nigerian army has rescued over 100 children and women from Boko Haram captivity in the country’s restive northeastern region, as troops embarked on fresh clearance operations, a military spokesman said on Wednesday.

“Dozens of Boko Haram (and Daesh) terrorists were annihilated, large cache of assorted arms, ammunition and so many variants of gun trucks and other fighting vehicles were captured,” Sagir Musa, the army spokesman, said in a statement.

“Additionally and most importantly, the operation resulted in the rescue and eventual liberation of over 100 women and children from the grip of the criminals/terrorists,” the statement added.

Musa said the operations took place in Mafa area of the Borno state, resulting in the death of dozens of militants. Many of the militants also sustained gunshot injuries, he added.
