Do you know that Chadian aircraft bombed Gamboru in Borno state in a raid targeting Boko Haram?


 Chadian aircraft yesterday Saturday Jan. 31st bombed the town of Gamboru in Borno state in a raid targeting  Boko Haram, security sources told AFP. The AFP report below…
An initial raid was carried out around midday by two fighter jets on the town in Nigeria’s far northeast along the Cameroon border, sources from Chad and Cameroon said on condition of anonymity.
It was followed by further bombings of areas around the town, Chadian sources said. The raids were aimed at “allowing Chadian soldiers to enter Gamboru,” a Cameroon security source told AFP.
 
Details on damage or casualties were not immediately clear.
Boko Haram overran the town several months ago as part of its campaign to seize territory in the region and create an Islamic state.
“Senior officers from the Cameroon army are located in Fotokol,” the Cameroon source said. “The Cameroon and Chadian armies met for the Gamboru operation.”
The Cameroon town of Fotokol and its surroundings, just across the border from Gamboru, saw fighting between Chadian soldiers and Boko Haram extremists on Thursday and Friday.
Chad’s military said three of its soldiers and 123 militants were killed in the two days of fighting in the area.
