As part of the ongoing multinational effort to curb insurgency, about 200 vehicles with soldiers from Chad and Niger have been seen crossing the border into Nigeria to fight Boko Haram, a resident said Monday.
Adam Boukarna, a resident of Bosso in Niger across Nigeria's northeast border, said that vehicles have been crossing since Saturday. He said after they all crossed into Nigeria loud detonations could be heard, signaling fighting against Boko Haram members.
Cameroon's minister of defense Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo'o confirmed there was an offensive by Nigeria and Chad but that Cameroon's military was not present because they've been asked to protect Cameroon's borders from the militants.
Chadian president Idriss Deby has claimed that Chad unilaterally decided upon the much celebrated committed war against Boko Haram this January, the resolute action not being the decision of Nigeria’s Jonathan and with the Nigerian president even stalling the process at every turn.
Nigeria’s Goodluck Jonathan had claimed that after five years of tolerating the sect that killed thousands, he finally this January embarked on the serious effort to defeat Boko Haram to make him more electable and to allow voting in occupied territory.
However the Chadians have said that this real war against the terrorists was decided upon unilaterally by Deby in reaction to Boko Haram obstructing Chad’s trade routes with Nigeria and the economy of the landlocked nation.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian military yesterday cautioned its partners in the Multinational Joint Task Force (MJTF) combating Boko Haram to stop comments that would undermine the counter terrorism operations.
A statement yesterday by PR-Nigeria, media consultants to Nigeria's security agencies said:
"The Nigerian military has raised concern over careless talks and undue exuberance by some individuals from the military of neighbouring countries involved in the Multinational Joint Task Force (MJNTF) which have the implication of destabilising the spirit of the joint efforts against terrorism within the sub-region."
Recall that Nigerian Islamist sect, Boko Haram on Saturday, March 7, 2015 announced its loyalty to the Islamic State (ISIS) group which holds a large swath of territory in Iraq and Syria.
Speaking via an audio recording released on Twitter, Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram’s leader paid glowing praises to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of ISIS.
Shekau went on to promise ISIS his loyalty in difficult and prosperous times, beseeching Muslims all around the world to come together and support ISIS so as to promote the Islamic religion.
