The Chadian army has taken full control over the town of Dikwa in the northeast of Nigeria which fell to fighters from the Islamist sect, Boko Haram some two months. According to the Chadian army, one of its soldiers was killed and 34 wounded in its ranks during the battle to take over Dikwa from Boko Haram.
Cameroon Concord was also reliably informed from Fotokol that more than 50 Boko Haram militants were killed and several others seriously wounded. The Chadian army also seized important war material. The operation was teleguided from Gambaru which after heavy fighting caused many Boko Haram fighters to flee the area. We gathered that Cameroon and Chadian special forces have embarked on a special mission geared towards capturing Abubakar Shekau.
