American Hostage Rescued In Northern Nigeria By SEAL Team 6 In Daring Raid by Alaska90(m): 3:11pm On Oct 31, 2020
An American hostage has been rescued in West Africa by SEAL Team 6 in a daring raid, Fox News has learned.

The elite SEAL Team 6 staged a daring raid in the West African country of Nigeria, rescuing Philip Walton, 27, who had been taken hostage, officials told Fox News.

“We had to get him before any potential trade or sale,” one U.S. official said.


President Donald Trump tweeted out a show of support, calling the operation a "big win" for the elite force, and promised further details.

Walton was kidnapped in Niger, which borders Nigeria, earlier this week. The hostage rescue took place in northern Nigeria earlier today.

The SEALs rescued Walton after killing a number of his captors. SEAL Team 6 was chosen for the operation because they are responsible for West Africa, Fox News has learned.

“U.S. forces conducted a hostage rescue operation during the early hours of 31 October in Northern Nigeria to recover an American citizen held hostage by a group of armed men," Jonathan Hoffman, chief Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement.

"This American citizen is safe and is now in the care of the U.S. Department of State. No U.S military personnel were injured during the operation."

"We appreciate the support of our international partners in conducting this operation," Hoffman added. "The United States will continue to protect our people and our interests anywhere in the world.”

It's a shame on our Military. Imagine American soldiers coming down to Nigeria to rescue their citizen. That shows American government values the life of her citizens. That's not the case over here. Our government have zero value for Nigerian life. That's why Boko haram sects and Fulani herdmen are slaughtering innocent NIGERIAns unperturbed. It's a shame though.
