lagos - The army of Nigeria at the weekend along with local militias over 5,000 people released that were held hostage by the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram. During the raids in fifteen villages six terrorists were slain in the northeast of the country, the military said Sunday.
The news of the liberation could not be verified because of the remoteness of the area where the military operation took place.

The jihadist group that swore allegiance to Islamic State last year, continues to commit regular terror attacks at crowded places like mosques and markets.
