The Nigerian Army has rescued another set of 234 women and children through the Kawuri and Konduga end of Sambisa forest on Thursday.
The women and children were captured by Boko Haram in Borno State.
According to the Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, said the freed captives are currently undergoing screening with about 300 hostages that regained freedom earlier in the week.
“This set in addition to the previous individuals earlier rescued during the ongoing operation in the area,” he said.
“The assault on the forest is continuing from various fronts and efforts are concentrated on rescuing hostages of civilians and destroying all terrorists camps and facilities in the forest.”
