The Chadian military recently concluded Bohoma Anger, an eight-day operation around the heavily disputed islands of Lake Chad. The military inflicted a heavy toll on Boko Haram killing 1000 terrorists and destroying 50 motorized canoes, military officials claimed.

Army spokesman, Colonel Azem Bermandoa, said in a statement to the media, that the operation cleared the extremists from the islands in the vast lake area between Chad, Nigeria, Niger, and Cameroon.

“Our men occupied two Boko Haram island bases and have also deployed on the Lake Chad banks of Niger and Nigeria. They will keep their positions until the arrival of these countries’ troops,” he added.

During the operation, 52 Chadian army soldiers were killed and about 200 others wounded.
