The Chadian army recorded a huge success in their fight against Boko Haram after the President of the country, Iddris Deby led soldiers in a war against the insurgents.
President Deby led the offensive against Boko Haram, in retaliation over an ambush in which over 90 Chadian soldiers were killed by the terrorists. He described it as the worst attack ever on the country’s military and vowed to ensure Boko Haram is crushed around the Lake Chad region.
The fight took place around Lake Chad and led to the arrest of a top Boko Haram commander, as well as recovery of weapons from the insurgents’ warehouse.
Some Nigerian soldiers were spotted hailing the soldiers while being led to war by their President. A Nigerian soldier was heard saying “these are Chadian soldiers, see their tanks. They are going to advance”.
