Nigerian Army Apologises for False Story on Boko Haram Rescue

The army had claimed that military troops in the north east successfully rescued members of the oil exploration team and members of Civilian Joint Task Force, abducted by the Boko Haram terrorists. The apology came as it disclosed that so far, the search and rescue team in the Boko Haram ambush recovered additional bodies of five soldiers, 11 civilian JTF and five members of the exploration team.
