Nigerian troops have rescued 200 girls from
Sambisa forest, the notorious hideout of the
insurgent group, Boko Haram, the defence
headquarters said Tuesday.
The girls were found Tuesday afternoon

Chibok, Borno State.
The girls were being “screened and profiled”, the
military said.
“Troops this afternoon rescued 200 girls & 93
women from Sambisa Forest. We cannot confirm
if the #ChibokGirls are in this group,” the
military said in a series of tweets.
“Troops captured and destroyed 3 terrorists
camps including the notorious Tokumbere camp
in the Sambisa Forest Operation.
“The freed persons are now being screened and
profiled,” while promising to provide more detail
on the operation later.”

militants on April 14, 2014.
