Troops eliminate many terrorists, capture 40


The Multinational Joint Task Force, MNJTF, operatives have killed dozens of terrorists and captured more than 40 in recent operations in the Lake Chad Basin.

This was disclosed by the Chief of Military Public Information for MNJTF, Lt.-Col. Kamarudeen Adegoke in a statement on Wednesday in N’Djamena Chad.

Mr Adegoke said the troops also destroyed several terrorist camps during the clearance and stabilisation operations in the region conducted from Jan. 18 to 29.

He added that 87 Boko Haram and Islamic State of West African Province, ISWAP, terrorists surrendered within the period.

Mr Adegoke said in Sector 1, Cameroon, the troops conducted ambush operations on Jan. 22 and Jan. 23 in the general area of Kolofata-Kirawa, captured one terrorist alive and recovered significant quantity of assorted foodstuff.

According to him, the Sector has been very active in dominating its area through land and maritime operations especially in areas such as Tchika, Gore Kendi and Kerena, among others.

In Sector 2, Chad, he said the troops had dominated the maritime domain from Bagalam-Kongalam to Koulfoua and denied the terrorists freedom of operation.

The MNJTF spokesman said this had led to the return of about 3,000 civilians in the general area of Bakatorolorom
