ABUJA, Nov 16 : The Nigerian army said on Sunday it had recaptured and "secured" the northeastern town of Chibok, where Islamic militants abducted more than 200 schoolgirls in April.
The army recaptured the town Saturday evening from Boko Haram militants, spokesman General Olajide Olaleye told AFP in a text message. "Mopping up ops ongoing. (The) town is now secured," he said.
Leading elder Pogu Bitrus told AFP the town was re-taken in a joint operation with local vigilantes known as the Civilian Joint Task Force, who back up the military in several parts of the northeast where Boko Haram is active.     ?AFP
