In a statement on Sunday, Edward Buba, director of defence media operations, said a total of 137 persons comprising 76 females and 61 males were rescued in Zamfara.

Buba said the rescued persons would be handed over to the Kaduna government for further action.

“Relatedly, it would be recalled that on March 21, troops equally rescued 16 pupils (Almajiris) with a woman taken hostage in Gada local government area of Sokoto state,” he said.

“These hostages were handed over to the Sokoto state government.

“These efforts demonstrate the armed forces resolve to finding other innocent hostages and track down the terrorists that perpetrated these crimes.

“These efforts would continue until other hostages are found and the terrorists arrested, tried, and brought to justice by Nigerian law.

“Troops are employing similar efforts to track down the culprits responsible for the killing of 18 soldiers in Okuama community in Delta state.

“Justice awaits the culprits, as they can not go unpunished.”
