Following the decision of Chad's President, Idris Deby to lead soldiers in a war against insurgents, the Chadian army has recorded a great feat in their fight against Boko Haram.

WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that President Deby led the offensive against Boko Haram in retaliation over an ambush in which over 90 Chadian soldiers were killed by the terrorists.

Reacting on the sad loss of over 90 Chadian soldiers, President Deby described it as the worst attack ever on the country's military and vowed to ensure Boko Haram is crushed around the Lake Chad region.

According to report, the fight between the Chadian soldiers and insurgents took place around Lake Chad and led to the arrest of a top Boko Haram commander as well as recovery of weapons from the insurgents' warehouse.

Some Nigerian soliders were spotted hailing the soldiers while being led to war by their President. A Nigerian soldier was heard saying "these are Chadian soldiers, see their tanks. They are going to advance".
