Chibok town in Borno state has been recaptured from Boko Haram militants.
They were driven away in a joint operation between the military, civilian JTF and local vigilantes.
Spokesman of the Nigerian Army, General Olajide Olaleye said mopping up operation is ongoing in the town where over two hundred schoolgirls were abducted in May by the insurgents.
Boko Haram took over the town on Thursday.
Many residents say the insurgents still have a presence in the surrounding villages and so the area is not safe.
