N’Djamena, Chad (AP) — After a revenge attack on the Boko haram terrorist, the Chad republic says its Chadian soldiers have killed not less than 1,000 Boko Haram in a well-publicized revenge attack against the Boko Haram extremists, on the islands of Lake Chad, in West Africa. Over the past few days, the rage of fire pointing at the unrepentant Boko Haram terrorist has been massive that you can hardly doubt Danny Padire’s of Associated Press report.
Chadian Army spokesperson, Col. Azem Bermandoa confirmed at the late hour of Thursday that 52 soldiers from the Chadian troops were killed while about 196 others were wounded during the eight days of weapon exchange between the troops and the jihadist. The operation has brought back normalcy to the island which forms the border between the four West African states; Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and Nigeria, reclaiming it back from extremists, he said.
The operation became necessary after the Boko Haram extremists killed more than 92 Chadian soldiers, the deadliest attack ever recorded, on the Chadian forces.
After the incident, the President of Chad, Idriss Deby partook in a pre-war engagement of the troops and vowed to destroy every bit of the Boko haram jihadist, the vow he had been fulfilling.
So far, the Boko Haram extremists have killed tens of thousands of people in the West African countries over the past decade and have forced millions of people from their homes.
It is high time the insurgency is brought back to its feet.
Chadian president in a video going around on social media confirm that about 90% of boko haram terrorists have been decimated.
He told the Chadian army to wait behind for a month till Nigerian government sent its army.
Chadian president, Idris’s Deby said while speaking to his troops on the front line,
Do not release the Bolo haram terrorist or their weapons to Nigeria, (they will be released) and they will come back to hurt Chad.Idriss Deby, Chadian president
