After a week-long battle, the Nigerian army has freed almost a thousand people from Boko Haram captivity. The operation led to the deaths of over 50 of the terrorists. According to the Nigerian military, the joint operation with the Cameroonian army remains ongoing.

Those rescued are mainly women and children, as well as some young men who had been forced to fight alongside the militants. The freed hostages have received necessary medical treatment. Praise the Lord for those released and continue to remember others remaining in captivity.
