“Acting fast on the intelligence, the military executed a raid on the terrorists’ hideout, leading to the detention of Mr. Awwal Bobo, 32, and Mr. Sallau Abdul, 33.

“The rescued victims, identified as Mrs. Fauziyya Yusuf and Mr. Abdulsallam Abubakar, were safely extricated from the clutches of their captors,” he stated.

In his words, “efforts are underway to track down and apprehend the fleeing criminals,” after some of the suspects had gotten away upon seeing the advancing troops.
