Nigerian Army Rescues Almost 300 From Boko Haram

Luke 21:7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will all this happen? What sign will show us that these things are about to take place?” Luke 21:11 "There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and epidemics in many lands, and there will be terrifying things (that which strikes terror), and great miraculous signs in the heavens."

The Nigerian army scored a major victory in their battle with Boko Haram, saving 293 women and girls from a Boko Haram camp.

The total included 200 girls although they were not the same girls kidnapped from Chibok last year that lead to the #BringBackOurGirls movement.

The raid in the Sambia Forest is the latest in a series of military movements in that region where Boko Haram had maintained a stronghold in their campaign against the government.  The region is not far from Chibok, which had initially led to hopes the girls were from the Chibok kidnapping.

The terrorists announced they are changing their name to Islamic State’s West Africa Province after aligning their group with the terrorist group ISIS.

A security officer to the governor of Borno State, where the raided area is located, said that unless the military focuses on taking out the leader of Boko Haram, the kidnapping of women is going to continue.

“How could they rescue over 200 women without getting Shekau or the top B. H. commanders?” Hussaini Monguno asked of the New York Times. “How many were killed? Without clear explanation, people will always believe they just want to cover up.”
