The Nigerian military has rescued 43 abducted persons and recovered 500 cows from fleeing Boko Haram terrorists in Mafa.

The military operation for the mission occurred Sunday morning after eight suspected Boko Haram terrorists abducted some cattle rearers and livestock at gunpoint at Dalakalari general area, Mafa Local Government Area.

Some well meaning people informed the military who swung into action and pursued the terrorists.

The terrorists, sensing danger, ran and abandoned the livestock just before Panamri village and ran away.

The troops were able to rescue 43 persons and 500 cows taken by the terrorists.

The victims and the recovered cows have been handed over to the local authorities.

    Each time Buhari commits padding, perjury, or plagiarism he sends troops somewhere to attack civilians and claim victory. We understand why they are claiming this imaginary rescue victory. If not to cover up the fallout of the bad plagiarism, one would ask – why now, why announce the victory on this holy day?
