Nigerian troops have captured a Boko Haram commander named Amman Judee but popularly known as ‘Ameer of Chawa,’ and rescued another 212 persons held hostage by the terrorists.
The capture and rescue took place in an operation to clear remnants of insurgents from some villages in the northern fringes of the Sambisa forest.
This was revealed by Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, the Director of Army Public Relations, who added that four terrorists were also neutralised.
Usman said the captured Boko Haram leader was undergoing interrogation, while the rescued persons were being documented and the under-aged children among them administered oral polio vaccines.
Newswire recalls that earlier in the week, troops rescued 30 persons held hostage by the terrorists during clearance operations in eight villages at Bama Local Government Area of Borno.
