The Nigerian army has announced its troops cleared some suspected terrorists’ enclaves in the Timbuktu triangle that cuts across Borno and Yobe states leading to the successful recovery of valuable assets and rescue of women and children held in captivity by the suspected terrorists.

The suspects allegedly abandoned their enclaves and fled following fierce air and artillery bombardments and ground battle. They left behind MOWAG armoured personnel carrier, a canter truck, and a tractor.

Also, 44 civilians including women and children who had been held captive in the area were rescued by the troops.

The rescued women and children were provided with immediate relief, including new clothing to give them a sense of comfort and dignity, as they begin their journey to freedom. They have since been handed over to the Borno state government.

The statement by the army read: “The sustained offensive operation by troops of the Nigerian Army to clear terrorists’ enclaves in the Timbuktu Triangle cutting across Borno and Yobe States has led to the successful recovery of valuable assets and the rescuing of women and children held in captivity by the terrorists,”
 
“The terrorists, who abandoned their enclaves and fled following fierce air cum artillery bombardments and ground battle, left behind MOWAG Armoured Personnel Carrier, a Canter Truck, and a Tractor.
 
“Additionally, 44 civilians including women and children who had been held captive in the area were rescued by the courageous troops.
 
“The rescued women and children were provided with immediate relief, including new clothing to give them a sense of comfort and dignity, as they begin their journey to freedom. They have been handed over to the Borno State Ministry of Women Affairs, where they will be administered. 
“The daring operation did not only lead to the recovery of vital resources, but also brought hope and freedom to innocent women and children who have been trapped in the midst of conflict.”
