"A 36 hand grenade was also recovered during the operation.
"The rescued hostages are currently receiving medical attention at the military health facilities.
"The Nigerian Army wishes to restate its commitment in rescuing all the hostages held by the Boko Haram terrorists," a post on the Nigerian Army Twitter page read.
