"I am still trying to verify from Madagali as you know, the operation is still on," Fadare said.
Fadare told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview that soldiers rescued the women while pursuing the insurgents.
Fadare, who did not give the number of the rescued women, however, said he was still trying to verify.
NAN recalls that about 16 women who went to fetch firewood in the forest around Sabongari village of Madagali on Wednesday, were kidnapped by insurgents.
