The press release by the Coordinator
Defence Media Operation, DHQ, Major-General John Enenche attributed the rescue efforts to Troops of Operation HADARIN DAJI.
He said “The students were rescued on the heels of credible intelligence by our gallant troops, with high degree of professionalism to ensure they were all rescued alive.
“The Military High Command commends troops of Operation Hadarin Daji including all security agencies for their dexterity. The general public who volunteered information are also hereby appreciated.
