Troops of Nigerian Army have rescued an 80-year-old captive from the Boko Haram terrorists in Born State. The old Mallam Ibrahim Matuk was said to have been subjected to severe hardship and torture by Boko Haram terrorists during his captivity in Borno State.
The 80-year-old Matuk lamented that all his children were killed by the terrorist group, while he was in captivity. A statement by Col Sani Usman, Acting Director, Army Public Relations, stressed that the activities of the Boko Haram insurgents defied any sane reasoning.
According to him, “The atrocities of the Boko Haram terrorists know no bound. Troops of 29 Task Force Brigade on clearance operations of remnants of Boko Haram terrorists rescued an 80 year old man in Shaltimari Village, Borno State, on Sunday, May 1, 2016.”
