A total of forty-three (43) dead bodies of Boko Haram/ISWAP insurgents were evacuated after a fierce battle with troops of Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) Sector 4, Diffa in Niger Republic.
A statement from Colonel Muhammad Dole, Chief of Military Public Information, HQ MNJTF N`Djamena Chad on Wednesday, said the troops displayed uncommon acts of gallantry and bravery when their location was attacked.
Troops of the sector deployed in Baroua came under heavy attack by suspected BHT/ISWAP criminals in the small hours of Wednesday, 25 August 2021.

The statement also said, regrettably seven gallant MNJTF soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice, while four other soldiers sustained varying degrees of injuries and are being treated in a military hospital.
“Coincidently, the Force Commander (FC), MNJTF, Major General Abdul Khalifah Ibrahim was in HQ Sector 4 Diffa on 25 August 2021 on the final leg of his familiarization/operational visit to the sectors.
“General Ibrahim commended the selfless sacrifice and act of gallantry, as demonstrated by the troops, ” The statement added.
While praying for the repose of the souls of the deceased soldiers whom he described as martyrs of freedom, the Force Commander also condoled the family of the deceased and wishes the wounded soldiers speedy recovery.
While addressing the troops at the frontline location of Sector 4, alongside the Commander Sector 4, MNJTF, Col Mamane Sani Kiaou, General Ibrahim said, despite the ongoing waves of BHT/ISWAP terrorists surrender, MNJTF forces will continue to take the battle to all identified enclaves of the insurgents.
He described these attacks as futile kicks of a dying horse.
He further charged them to brace up, remain alert and deal decisively with remnants of the criminals around the fringes of the Lake Chad region.
