Chadian President, Idriss Deby Leds Military Troops Against Boko Haram Insurgency [Photos]

Chad’s Army led by President Idriss Deby on the battlefield seizes weapons from Boko Haram.

The President of Chad, Idriss Déby on Saturday claimed victory of the terrorist group, Boko Haram saying their bases have been completely destroyed.

Chad destroyed five bases of the Boko Haram in response to an attack on a military base on March 23 that killed 98 Chadian soldiers.

Deby said last month that the soldiers were attacked on the island village of Boma in the swampy Lake Chad zone in the west of the country.

The village is an area where soldiers from Chad, Nigeria and Niger often camp to fight the Islamist militants.

Following the Saturday’s victory, President Déby said:

“I went down this morning (Saturday) to Kaiga-Kindjinria. No element of Boko haram is present in the islands of Lake Chad. Congratulations to our Defense and Security Forces who have cleaned up the entire island area.”

The Chadian president said the “Operation Boma Wrath” against the terror group would continue without pause.

Since Boko Haram launched its bloody insurgency in 2009 in northeastern Nigeria more than 30,000 people have been killed and nearly 3 million displaced.

Boko Haram’s activities have extended beyond Nigeria to other countries within the Lake Chad Basin covering Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

These countries, especially Nigeria continues to struggle to completely defeat the terror group and often suffer deadly attacks from the group.

The recent victory by the Chadian soldiers led by President Debby has ignited a lot of reactions from Nigerians.
