Ten Chadian Soldiers Killed In Boko Haram Attack On Military Post

Military equipment has been looted and a senior officer is among the dead at a military post on an island in Lake Chad. 

Boko Haram terrorists killed ten Chadian soldiers in an attack on an island in Lake Chad.

The terrorists looted the forward military post at Bouka-Toullorom island during the attack in the early hours of Nov 22. 

Among the victims were the Commander of the Ngouboua military sector, whose name was not mentioned.

“Early this morning, a unit of the forces of defence and security, dispatched as a prelude to the installation of an advance post of the Chadian national army in the island of Bouka-Toullorom, between Ngouboua and Kaiga, Lac Tchad province, was taken apart by elements of the Boko Haram sect, resulting in the death of ten and others wounded”, a statement by the Chadian security forces declared.

The Boko Haram terrorists seized a large quantity of arms and other military equipment and currently control the zone.

Following the attack, the Secretary General of the Organisation for Islamic Cooperation OIC, Hissein Brahim Taha, has “vigorously condemned the terrorist attack perpetrated this day against a unit of the defense and security forces of Chad”.
