RECENT reports from Borno State indicate that about 6,000 Boko Haram fighters are encircled by soldiers from the Multi National Joint Task

Force (MNJTF) around Madagali and Gulak and
are negotiating a possible surrender as the
noose tightens.
Since 2009, Boko Haram has been waging a
brutal war against Nigeria in a bid to establish
an Islamic caliphate and over the last year has
enjoyed substantial success on the battlefield. It
scored military success, making sweeping gains
across Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States,
capturing 13 local government areas.
Alarmed by the raging success of the terrorists,
Nigeria, Niger Republic, Chad and Cameroon
decided to form the MNJTF that would enable to
cooperate militarily. Over the last week, the
MNJTF has enjoyed significant success,
particularly with the arrival of battle-hardened
Chadian troops who over the weekend reclaimed
the town of Gamboru-Ngala near the Chad
border with Nigeria.
