Civilian Joint Task Force members fight off insurgents and rescue group who had been held in captivity

Brief – Members of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) managed to rescue a group of people, including women and children, who had been held captive by Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’way Wa’l-Jihād (JAS) fighters.

A member of the CJTF, who asked to remain anonymous for security reasons, told RNI that they came across the JAS, better known as Boko Haram, while they were escorting villagers back to their homes in Mukdolo, Kesa and Warsale on Tuesday, May 10.

At Mukdolo, about 15km to 20km from Dikwa, they encountered the insurgents and their captives. A fight ensued and one of the CJTF members was stabbed in the leg. However, they managed to chase the insurgents away and rescued the group, handing them over to the Nigerian Army, who questioned and released them and allowed them to return to their families.
