The Nigerian military will on Saturday, April 4, 2015 march into Sambisa Forest, Borno State in a bid to rescue the over 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents in April 2014, The Cable reports.
According to a soldier who will be taking part in the operation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the operation will be carried out by the elite force of the Nigerian military with special training in rescue operations.

The soldier said: “We are advancing to Sambisa on Saturday to flush out the militants from their last stronghold.

“It is going to be a decisive battle because we have expelled the militants from other two states in the northeast. We have specialised rescue teams who will be participating in the operation. We hope to find and rescue the missing girls.”
This would be the first major attack on Boko Haram’s last known stronghold, although the Nigerian Air Force have previously carried out aerial aids on Sambisa forest.
