The Nigerian army recently rescued 293 girls and women from a rapidly decaying Boko Haram. They’ve followed that up not long after with another rescue of 160 from the same Sambisa forest the first operation took place.

The numbers are not exactly concrete, but a Nigerian army spokesperson confirmed 60 women and 100 children to the CNN, with more coming in.

The operation was not cost free though, with a female hostage and a soldier losing their lives in the process.

The kidnapped, who the terrorists use for several debauched purposes, have “undergone psychological trauma and indoctrination”, the spokesman further added.

Amnesty International estimates over 2,000 women and girls have been captured by Boko Haram since they began their insurgency, and after years of not knowing their fate they’re being recovered one group at a time.

Let’s hope for more of such news.

Gossip Mama is one of the dumbest writers you will ever meet. What she lacks for in brains she makes for in.....As a female with some lil sense in her mind, she wants to give it out to the celebs lacking it. If you dont find her glued to the Tv, check her out by the computer bashing some celebrity with words.. I am not a journalist nor do I aspire to be one. I am a blogger who saw the potential of this site and joined the bloggers. And yes, I am biased. I only report on artists/celebrities that I like or find interesting.....
