The photo you are seeing here is not that of a family happily posing for the camera – no! Rather, it is that of three women and six children liberated from the claws of Boko Haram warriors captured by Nigerian troops in Borno State, North-East Nigeria.

The photo came along with a signal from Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters in the possession of News Express.

The signal said: Troops of the Special Operations have rescued three (3) women and six (6) children after overrunning 3 terrorists camps in the notorious Sambisa forest area of central Borno in the ongoing onslaught against terrorists.  The women and children who were kidnapped from Police Barracks and environs during the May 7 attack on Bama had been held in the camp since their abduction and were featured in the video by Abubakar Shekau recently.  Troops combing the forest are however yet to locate one other women and her 2 children.

Meanwhile, a Defence Headquarters operational Assessment Team led by the Chief of Training and Operations, Major General Lawrence Ngubane, have been visiting various locations where troops are deployed in operation.  The team has been in the field to ascertain the progress and effectiveness of the deployment in the operation.  The seven man team has returned to Abuja to brief the Chief of Defence Staff after 3 days at the operation area.
