Chadian president leads soldiers to capture Boko Haram’s ‘arms store’ in Sambisa"/>
In a swift reaction to Bokoharam's ambush of Chadian soldiers which left 92 of the troops dead, a major onslaught was launched in retaliation by Chadian troops who have now succeeded in flushing bokoharam out of Sambisa forest.
Within a few days of the counter attack against the deadly sect, success has been recorded which has left bokoharam sect in disarray. The terrorist group was rattled by the manners of the coordinated attack to such an extent that they were left to scamper for survival.
Report has it that Bokoharam sect, last week, has killed 92 Chadian soldiers in a surprise attack that was carried out in a place called Boma. The loss was so frustrating that the country's President personally visited the point of attack and vowed retaliation.
While visiting the point of attack, the President, General Idriss Déby Itno, has described it as the worst in the country's history, and thereby vowed a devastating retaliation.
The President made good his threat by subsequently launching attack against bokoharam. In the attack, Chadian soldiers destroyed five bases of Boko Haram located in Niger and Nigeria, and also recovered hundreds of assorted weapons.
