U.S. forces have conducted a hostage rescue operation in northern Nigeria "to recover an American citizen held hostage by a group of armed men. This American citizen is safe" and "no U.S military personnel were injured during the operation.”

The operation involved the governments of the U.S., Niger, and Nigeria working together to rescue Walton quickly, sources said.

The elite SEAL Team Six carried out a "precision" hostage rescue mission and killed all but one of the seven captors, according to officials with direct knowledge about the operation.

"They were all dead before they knew what happened," another counterterrorism source with knowledge told ABC News.

Decisive action by the American govt to rescue their citizen. Meanwhile some secondary school girls kidnapped in Chibok since April 2014 are still in captivity. Shame on Nigerian govt!

SARS and Brutai Army  where were they when US Army invaded northern region for rescue mission? is there no law on air space (fly zone). This is to tell how porous the so called Nigeria is. Security agents in Nigeria exhibit their powers on their citizens. Chibok girls cannot be rescued, army is busy deploying soldiers to Afaraukwu and Ebonyi state to fight unarmed civilians rather than fighting insurgents and defending the territory of the nation.
