Nigerian Army Rescues 386 Abductees From Sambisa Forest After a Decade of Abduction

The Nigerian Army has successfully liberated 386 individuals who had been held captive for a decade in the notorious Sambisa Forest, a stronghold of the Boko Haram insurgents. This monumental rescue operation, named “Operation Desert Sanity III,” marks a significant victory against terrorism and a beacon of hope for families who had long awaited the return of their loved ones.

The operation, which spanned ten days, saw the Nigerian military forces navigate through the dense and perilous forest, overcoming the challenges posed by the insurgents to bring back mostly women and children who had been abducted by Boko Haram militants. The acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division, Brig. Gen. AGL Haruna, hailed the troops’ performance and professionalism, emphasizing that the mission was not only to clear the remnants of terrorists but also to provide an opportunity for those willing to surrender.

The rescued individuals, some of whom had been in captivity for as long as ten years, shared harrowing tales of survival and resilience. Their release has been met with overwhelming relief and joy, as they reunite with families and communities that had feared the worst.

The Chief of Army Staff commended the troops for their unwavering commitment and urged them to sustain the momentum in the ongoing fight against insurgency. The successful operation is a testament to the Nigerian Army’s resolve to secure the nation and protect its citizens from the clutches of terror.

As the news of the rescue spreads, Nigerians across the country celebrate the triumph of good over evil, and the world watches in admiration of the courage displayed by the Nigerian Army. The return of the 386 abductees is not just a rescue; it’s a restoration of hope and a reaffirmation of the strength of the human spirit.
