The Nigerian military says it has rescued 178 people from the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in northern Borno state.

In a statement released, it said that 101 of those freed were children and a further 67 were women.

The statement did not say if the girls abducted from a school in Chibok in April 2014 were among them.

The military also says that a Boko Haram commander was captured and several camps were cleared.
