Boko Haram: Army releases disturbing photos of rescued emaciated, amputated victims

The advancing troops have captured the villages of Jerre and Dipchari and have destroyed the terrorists’ camps located in those areas.

Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, in a statement said advancing troops in the Bama axis have rescued yet another 62 people fleeing from Bitti and Pulka.

He said the troops were also combing all known enclaves of the Boko Haram within Bama, Banki and Pulka area.

In addition, due to the offensive action of the military, another fleeing 22 women, 15 men and 40 children arrived Bama on Saturday.

The rescued persons looking haggard, dejected and malnourished are being catered for by the troops pending the intervention of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

The persons have been cooperating with the military as they have been giving useful information, assisting troops in their offensive operations.

The statement added that another fleeing person, Bulama Bukar, whose right hand was amputated by the terrorists in Sambisa about a year ago based on allegation of stealing a bag of beans, was intercepted by troops at Jebra bridge today with his family.

In a related development, 8 suspected Boko Haram terrorists have on Saturday surrendered themselves to troops of 21 Brigade Nigerian Army.

The suspected terrorists are being investigated and screened for more information.

Meanwhile, military Engineers are making tremendous progress in the repairs of the bridge linking Maiduguri and Gamboru Ngala that was blown by Boko Haram terrorists.

The bridge repairs would soon be completed.

As the military pushes for the final defeat of Boko Haram terrorists, the fight against the sect is gaining successful momentum with most of the camps falling to the federal might.
