Nigerian Troops Rescue 100 Kidnap Victims Around Kogi-Nasarawa Boundary

The victims who are mostly women and children were rescued from Darusalam by troops of the 177 battalion and the army records, Lokoja.

The chief press secretary to Governor Yahaya Bello, Mohammed Onogwu, the camp located at Ittu is home to about 2,000 kidnappers and some Boko Haram members.

The statement read;

Between last Saturday and Wednesday, about 100 persons, mostly women and children, were rescued and taken to Lafia, while yesterday at Achara in Tawari Ward of Kogi LGA, about 180 family members of Darusalam were captured.

One of the suspects was shot dead while attempting to escape during the military clearing operations.

The logistics support of the Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, to the Nigerian Army helped in no small measure in the success recorded by men of the Nigerian Army in this latest operation.

Recall that the governor of Kogi state and chairman, security committee, Northern Governors Forum, during Eid-kabir celebrations told journalists in Okene that in days ahead, he will lead security operatives into the forest to unleash terror on criminals operating within the state.
