Boko Haram Members Drown in Lake Chad as They Try to Flee Nigeria

A large number of terrorists have drowned in the Lake Chad as they fled the heavy bombardment by Nigerian Air force heralding the advance of Nigerian troops on mission to flush them out of Baga, the Nigerian defence headquarters has said.  

In a statement issued by the Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, a Major General, he said, “Not even the strategy of mining over 1500 spots with land mines on the routes leading to the town could save the terrorists from the aggressive move of advancing troops” He added, “All the land mines were skillfully cleared one after the other. 

Eventually, the resistance of the terrorists collapsed and the land forces finally stormed the town in the early hours of Friday. “Many of the terrorists died while an unknown but substantial number of them fled with various degrees of injury, in the series of encounter along the routes of advance as troops headed for Baga. ‎
