A pregnant woman rescued from suspected Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria’s northeast gave birth to a baby boy few minutes after her rescue, a military official said on Saturday.

The woman, whose name was not given by the spokesman for the army, Colonel Sani Usman, was one of the 27 persons, who escaped from Mayo Ali village.

Colonel Usman said troops of 117 Task Force Battalion made the rescue during a patrol around Mildo, Vapura, Mildo, Shelmi, Gubla, Dar and Hyambula settlements in Adamawa State.

Both mother and child are being cared for at the unit’s Regimental Aid Post and are doing fine.

He said that the patrol was part of clearance operations against remnants of Boko Haram terrorists terrorising communities in the northeast.

Within the last 48 hours, the troops were able to clear Boko Haram camps, killed several of the terrorists, recovered vehicles, weapons, equipment and also rescued some persons.

The troops of 151 Task Force Battalion also cleared terrorists hideouts in Izza and eight surrounding other villages while troops of 121 Task Force Battalion deployed at Pulka came under attack from suspected Boko Haram terrorists fanning out of Sambisa forest to escape sustained aerial bombardment by the Nigerian Air Force pilots.

The troops successfully repelled the attack, killing 17 suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

They also recovered 12 AK-47 rifles, six AK-47 rifle magazines, one General Purpose Machine Gun, one Browning Machine Gun, one Toyota Hilux vehicle, a 60mm mortar tube, six pieces of 60mm mortar bombs, one belt of 12.5mm ammunition and nine belts of 12.7mm (NATO) ammunition.

Others were three hand grenades and seven boxes of .50mm ammunition.

Troops of 114 Task Force Battalion while on patrol along Bitta-Pridang-Manawashe axis also rescued 95 persons suspected to have escaped from Madube and Shuwari general area.

The rescued persons are being screened and profiled.

Also, troops of 115 Task Force Battalion accompanied by some members of the vigilante group in their area also conducted patrol to Dogwaba, Dutse, Mayolarde, Musa A, B and C villages without any contact with terrorists. They have, however, continued to dominate the area and make it secure. (Channels TV)
