Nigerian troops in cordon and search operations have rescues scores of elderly persons and women locked up following the recapture of Gwoza, Borno State from Boko Haram terrorists.

According to a statement by the defence headquarters, the freed hostages, some of whom are so weak are being given medical attention while others are also receiving necessary care pending the arrival and activities of aid agencies.

“Massive destruction of infrastructure and property including blowing up bridges and burnt houses including Emir’s Palace have also been noticeable.

“Troops are also carefully removing land mines placed in various parts of the town.

“In Bama also in Borno State, troops on routine patrol in the suburbs of the town this morning recovered a large number of rifles and various arms believed to have been abandoned by terrorists who fled the area when troops were advancing to flush them of the town recently.
