Boko Haram using captives as human shield -DHQ
The Nigerian Defence Headquarters has explained that the inability of the military to rescue lecturers, oil workers and women in Boko Haram enclave is because the terrorists were using the captives as human shield.
It said the military cannot apply full force to free the captives because doing so would endanger their lives.
On June the 21, ten women among them female police personnel were abducted in a raid by the militant group on a military/police convoy along Damboa Road, in Borno State.
They were abducted after Boko Haram fighters reportedly attacked a convoy of security personnel in the Damboa area of Borno State when the officers were said to be going to a burial in Adamawa State.
