Nigerian Army Rescues Medical Team And 17 Others....

The Nigerian Army says it has rescued 20 people including a medical team from the Boko Haram terrorists after a fierce battle in Yobe State.







The Nigerian Army Operations Media Coordinator, Col. Aminu Iliyasu, in a statement on Saturday said the operation took place at Babban Gida in Tarmuwa local government area on Nov. 27.

He disclosed that the troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE and elements of Yobe State Vigilantes supported by Air Task Force Operation, thwarted the attempt by some of the insurgents to infiltrate the town.

According to him, after a fierce battle that lasted about one hour, the terrorists withdrew with one of the killed while one Rocket Propelled Gun 7 (RPG 7) bomb was also recovered from them.


“It is gratifying to note that all 20 abductees of the criminal insurgents including a team of medical personnel comprising one Musa Bulama (a medical doctor), Gana Yelwa (a Nurse) and Malam Bala Musa (Yobe State Primary Healthcare Ambulance driver) have been successfully rescued by the troops.

“Additionally, a Toyota SUV Ambulance belonging to the Yobe State Primary Healthcare Board earlier snatched by the insurgents was equally recovered by the gallant troops.

“Others equally rescued are Adamu Madugu, Tukur Abdulkarim, Ibrahim Sulaiman and 14 males who are teenagers of between 13 years and 16 years,” he said.
