No fewer than 338 persons who were held captive by the dreaded terrorist sect, Boko Haram have regained their freedom, after Nigerian troops stormed the sect’s den, in Sabisa.

Nigerian army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman, who confirmed this, said that 30 Boko Haram terrorists were killed in the raid and they were all rescued on the edge of the sect’s stronghold in the northeast’s Sambisa forest.

Self-defense fighter Bukar Jimeta said they killed at least 150 militants and recovered guns and explosives used in suicide bombings that have killed hundreds in recent months.

Dozens of Nigerians held captive by Boko Haram were being treated in a transit camp in the Nigerian town of Mubi with children receiving malaria injections.

Brigade Commander, Victor Ezugwu says operations are still ongoing to flush out the remaining insurgents.
