soldiersThe Public Relations Officer of the 28 Task Force Brigade, Mubi, in Adamawa State, Capt A.O. Fadare, has announced that some of the women abducted by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in Madagali Local Government Area of the state, had been rescued.
Fadare told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview on Friday that soldiers rescued the women while pursuing the insurgents.
Fadare, who did not give the number of the rescued women, however, said he was still trying to verify.
“I am still trying to verify from Madagali as you know, the operation is still on”, the Brigade spokesman said.
It would be recalled that the women, comprising 14 adults and two girls, who went on a fishing expedition and search for firewood in the forest around Sabongari village of Madagali on Wednesday, were abducted by the gunmen, who reportedly came in large numbers.
It was learnt that some vigilantes who escorted the women fled upon sighting the insurgents, with one suffering a bullet wound to his arm while two other women, who pretended to have drowned, were able to escape to narrate their ordeal.
