Troops of the Nigerian Army (NA) have reportedly rescued about 44 women and children during a raid on terrorists enclaves in Timbuktu Triangle, Damboa LGA of Borno.

Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency publication focused on the Lake Chad region, said the victims were rescued by the troops of Operation Lake Sanity III, a subsidiary of Operation Hadin Kai.

The publication said the victims were rescued after some fighters of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) were defeated by troops of sector 2 special forces.

The feat was reportedly achieved in collaboration with troops of HYBRID and Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) on April 20.


Intelligence sources told Zagazola Makama that the rescued victims are 28 children and 14 women, including some elderly females and two men.

The publication added that there was no casualty on the part of the military.

Recently, troops killed two “terrorists” during a clearance operation in Kana village, Biu LGA of Borno state.
