MNJTF Honours Cameroon Officers Over Boko Haram Warfare In Lake Chad Basin

The Cameroon soldiers were honoured for their role in Operation Integrite du Lac, which has recorded success against Boko Haram terrorists.

Senior military officers from Cameroon, Brigadier General Bouba Dobekreo and three of his elements who served in the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) engaged in the fight against Boko Haram in the Lake Chad Basin on July 29, 2022, received honours in the Staff Headquarters of the MJTF in Camp Farcha in N’Djamena the Chadian capital. 

The Cameroonian recipients of the military medals were honoured for their participation in “Operation Integrite du Lac”, a big success against the Boko Haram terrorist group.

“Brigadier General Bouba Dobekreo was one of the brains behind this punitive expedition against the terrorists. It was thus due to the talent and the strategy of this general officer that the high command of MJTF has recognised by awarding him a medal,” a senior officer of the MNJTF declared during the ceremony.

The Multinational Joint Task Force also recognised the exceptional combat qualities of three other Cameroonian military officers in Sector Number 3 of the MNJTF, with Navy Captain Rachel Mbah receiving a special mention.

The MNJTF is a coalition of military forces of member countries of the Lake Chad Basin Commission and Benin. Nigerian General, Abdul Khalifa Ibrahim, leads it. It has succeeded in neutralising security threats, including hundreds of Boko Haram terrorists, since its institution on March 21, 1994, with the mission to fight against criminality and banditry in the Lake Chad region.
