Chadian troops continued massive bombardment of Boko Haram enclaves which began since Sunday March 29, 2020, DailyPost is reporting.
The troops have been recording success to the extent that the sect leader, Abubakar Shekau, released an audio asking his fleeing fighters to remain at battlefield.
But on Saturday, soldiers destroyed five bases of Boko Haram hideouts and recovered hundreds of assorted weapons. The bases, located in Niger and Nigeria, were targeted in the ongoing “Operation Boma’s Wrath”, following the killing of over 90 soldiers by the terrorists about two weeks.
In reaction, Chad’s president who led his troop in the war vowed to sustain the raid against the insurgents wherever they were hiding. During his visit to the scene, President Idriss Deby called it the worst attack ever on the country’s military. He then vowed to ensure the crush of Boko Haram around the Lake Chad region.
The military, within a few days, deployed gun trucks, gunships, armoured vehicles and troops currently at war. Their superior firepower has caused deaths of scores of insurgents while others are running away from their positions.
