Meanwhile, The Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) have launched a coordinated joint offensive to dislodge and completely rid the Islands of Lake Chad of any Boko Haram/ Islamic State West Africa Province presence and activities.

The troops involved in the operation are the Sector 2 MNJTF (Chad Republic), Sector 3 MNJTF (Nigeria) and Sector 4 MNJTF (Niger Republic).

The terrorists had retreated into the islands following the sustained onslaught by the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole.

“These heinous acts necessitated the contiguous nations of the Lake Chad basin to jointly launch this massive onslaught on the terrorists across the common borders extending into the Northern Tumbuns of the Lake Chad Basin in Nigeria,” Brigadier-General Benard Onyeuko, acting director of Defence media operations said in a statement on Thursday, April 2.

Still on security, the Air Task Force of the Operation Lafiya Dole and the Artillery Batteries of Sector 3 of the Multi-National Joint Task Force have bombarded Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) camp in Tumbun Fulani on the fringes of the Lake Chad in Borno state.

This was disclosed in a statement by the acting director Defence Media Operations, Brigadier General Benard Onyeuko.

According to him, it was part of coordinated joint operations to flush out the terrorists from their stronghold in the Tumbuns Island.

Onyeuko stated that the bombardment was carried out following intelligence reports which indicated that ISWAP elements, with their structures concealed under the dense vegetation of the area, were using the settlement as a base from where they plan and launch attacks.
