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.

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.
