The United States forces say they have rescued an American citizen who is being held hostage in northern Nigeria.

In a statement, Jonathan Hoffman, the Pentagon spokesman, said the rescue operation was conducted on Saturday morning.

The American was reportedly abducted in Niger Republic on Tuesday and subsequently moved to Nigeria.

“U.S. forces conducted a hostage rescue operation during the early hours of 31 October in Northern Nigeria to recover an American citizen held hostage by a group of armed men,” the statement quoted by CNN read.

“This American citizen is safe and is now in the care of the U.S. Department of State. No U.S military personnel were injured during the operation.

“We appreciate the support of our international partners in conducting this operation. The United States will continue to protect our people and our interests anywhere in the world.”

    That is America for you. The only thing Nigeria can do is to threaten its civilians and call them bloody civilians. No show in front of boko fucking Haram! This is a wake up call to those idiots who call themselves anything. America will finish you in seconds, not even minutes. They don’t negotiate with terrorists

    Please don’t be stupid. The US will surely have informed our government before the operation. Do you think our government will broadcast such news? You can see they said thank you to international partners who help in the rescue mission. Pls let’s read carefully and understand before making stupid comments.

    I think our military must have been signaled before executing such an operation. We are falling back to our placed traps. Nigeria military forces are African superpower due to their mass numbers not there technicalities.
