566 persons, including 355 babies, held by Islamist militant group Boko Haram in several camps across northeastern Borno state have been released by the Nigerian army, Bloomberg reports.

The released persons were handed over to Borno state governor Kashim Shettima at a rehabilitation center run in partnership with United Nations Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

The released captors are to receive medical care at the rehabilitation center.

Boko Haram has been a menace especially in the north-eastern part of Nigeria for over seven years. It has been responsible for over tens of thousands of deaths. The Islamic group is trying to establish a Caliphate in the north-east. The Nigerian Army under the present administration of Muhammadu Buhari have so far been able to contain to some extent the activities of the terrorist group.
