Chibok girls In a daring and precise operation, the Nigerian troops have stormed the Sambisa Forest and rescued about 300 women and girls. 

The PRNigeria gathered that at least three major terrorists camps have been destroyed in the well-coordinated attacks that included the destruction of the notorious Tokumbere camp in the Sambisa Forest. While confirming the operation, the Director Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, said he could not confirm the identity of the freed victims and their origins and he could not state if any of them was from Chibok until after thorough screening and proper investigations.

Olukolade said: "I can only confirm the rescue this afternoon of 200 girls and 93 women in different camps in the forest. "We are yet to determine their origin as all the freed persons are now being screened and profiled. "Please don't misquote me on their origin.

 "We will provide more details later." Our earlier story: No fewer than 200 girls and 93 women were rescued from the much-talked about Sambisa forest by Nigerian troops on Tuesday afternoon. Information made available by the Defence Headquarters said the rescue was made possible after troops captured and destroyed three of the terrorists' camps in the forest. Sambisa forest is the only known territory still being controlled by the Boko Haram terrorists until the military stepped in about two weeks ago.

 The Defence Headquarters however said it is not yet confirmed if the girls are the Chibok girls. It said the freed persons are now being screened and profiled. Details coming soon.
