The Commander-in-Chief of the Chadian army President Idris Deby has ordered an important pillar of the Chadian army from Gambarou in Nigeria and Fotokol in Cameroon to deploy in the South precisely at Amchide and Limani in the Mayo-Sava Division in the Far North region of Cameroon. Cameroon Concord gathered from our military informant that the decision was made following intelligence that Boko Haram fighters were regrouping in the area. The deployment which started earlier today came at a time when the Republic of Niger announced that it has killed more than 500 members of the Boko Haram terrorist group since February 2015.

Niger’s police spokesman Captain Adili Toro said on Wednesday that some 513 terrorists had been killed since February 8, adding this number does not take into account those killed in land and air operations launched on Sunday jointly by the armies of Niger and Chad against Boko Haram militants in Nigeria. Niger has also lost 24 soldiers in the operations that have also killed at least one civilian and wounded 38 soldiers, Toro stated.On March 8, Nigerien and Chadian military forces launched a joint operation against the Takfiri terrorist group in northeastern Nigeria. The military operation took place following the African Union’s final decision to establish a regional force of up to 10,000 men to battle the terrorist group, which has pledged allegiance to ISIL Takfiris.
