Members of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) posed with the dead body of a notorious Boko Haram commander after killing him during operation.
The Boko Haram commander was killed along with some of his fighters recently during offensive engagements conducted across the areas of responsibilities in Nigeria, Chad, and Niger Republic.
Acting on intercepted Boko Haram communication, a coalition of MNJTF Air Forces conducted air interdictions in Madayi, Meri and Tchoukou-Bol and destroyed Boko Haram logistic equipment concealed in thickly forested areas.
Similarly, troops of the MNJTF and national forces operating in Doro Naira and Ngolom environs made contact with Boko Haram Terrorists and at the end of the engagement 5 terrorists were killed, 3 captured, while others fled. 2 out of the 3 captured terrorists were eventually killed when the vehicle conveying them went over a road side bomb planted by Boko Haram themselves.
