Nigerian Army rescues dozen women, children from Boko Haram

London: The Nigerian Army has rescued at least 12 women and children captives from Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, said officials.

According to The Guardian, military spokesman Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman said that the army cleared the camps of the militant group in north-eastern state of Borno.

However, none of the 219 girls abducted in April 2014 from a school in Chibok were among those rescued.

Hundreds of hostages have been freed from the captivity of Boko Haram in 2015. (ANI)
