As Nigerian military is still battling to contain insurgency, over 2000 gallant soldiers from Chad have entered the country to help combat Boko Haram terrorists.

Today, Chad officially sent troops into Nigeria to combat the bloody insurgents waging war against harmless civilians in Northern Nigeria.



For almost an hour, Chadian warplanes struck Boko Haram positions, then armoured vehicles rolled across the bridge linking Fotokol town in Cameroon with Gamboru in Nigeria, clearing the way for the infantry.

“Our troops entered Nigeria this morning. The combat is ongoing,” one of the sources at Chad’s army headquarters told reporters.


The entire Chadian contingent of about 2,000 troops had crossed the frontier by midday without a shot being fired, an AFP correspondent saw.

Chad’s President Idriss Deby Itno sent soldiers to Cameroon in mid-January to help take on Boko Haram, whose raids, massacres and abductions are estimated to have claimed 13,000 lives since the movement emerged in northern Nigeria in 2009.

Meanwhile, French military aircraft are carrying out surveillance missions to help countries bordering Nigeria tackle Boko Haram militants amid efforts by the countries  in the region to coordinate a response to the threat posed by the insurgents.

Although, a recent comment by the President of France suggests French aircraft were currently operating over Nigeria.

The soldiers are currently awaiting authorization from the Nigerian military to carry out ground raids via Cameroon.

Dear poster, for you, this might just be a stupid joke or "having fun"  at the same level as posting Maheeda's bathroom videos. I will warn you just this once. This is a matter of national security and what you are doing in the name of "having fun" might land you in big trouble sooner than you think. A bit of stupidity can be tolerated but this goes way beyond that. If you want to draw people to your site, then better post videos of naked women dancing up a tree than sticking your nose where it will definitely get burnt sooner than you think. A word is enough for the WISE. STOP SPREADIND RUMOURS!

What exactly has the poster done to warrant such threat from you? Maybe you are a soldier or brother to a soldier or son to one that is why you are here making threat cos that's what you all do best, threatening civilians with your uniform all because you are some phyuking soldier. Well it only in a country like Nigeria and other corrupt African countries like Nigeria that soldiers act as if they are God and beat up anybody like on the street, lock up anybody you think who offend or doesn't like you. I hate uniform men like you, your position as a soldier is to protect and help people, even give your life protecting, but no its just the other way round. Leave the poster alone and face the current problems facing the country, everybody has a right to post whatever he/she wishes and if you don't like it you close it at your end. And Mind you am a son to a Major if you must know, and yet i still say i hate Nigeria millitary with passion, i wish i can enroll soon after my master and be at the top some day, then i will eradicate people like you who use their prowess and authorities only to bully civilians.

May God squeeze out life from GEJ. He is a total disgrace. If I were Chadian president, I will annex the north eastern part of Nigeria. Boko haram has succeeded in exposing how weak the Nigerian military is.Posterity will never forgive anybody that votes for Jona in this election. Chai see common Chad!
