PostSubject: Fleeing Boko Haram insurgents drown in Lake Chad   2015-02-22, 06:50

A large number of Boko Haram
insurgents have drowned in Lake
Chad as they fled the bombardment
by Nigerian Air Force.
Though the number of the dead
terrorists was not given, it was said
that many of them died as they fled
the aerial attacks by NAF jets on
Baga, the location of Multi-National
Joint Taskforce base seized by the
sect in January, 2015.
A statement by the Director,
Defence Information, Maj. Gen. Chris
Olukolade in Abuja on Saturday,
said the insurgents had buried land
mines in over 1,500 spots on the
routes leading to the town.
It said all the land mines were
skilfully cleared one after the other,
noting that the mining of the
grounds could not save the
terrorists from the aggressive
move of advancing troops.
“A large number of terrorists have
drowned in 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.
“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.
“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 of the as troops headed for
Baga,” the statement added.
Olukolade said apart from the five
anti-aircraft guns and the rifles
captured from the terrorists, over
34 motorcycles and five vehicles
including trucks being used for
operations by the terrorists were
destroyed in the course of the
fighting as troops headed for Baga,
noting that the troops finally began
clearing the terrorists on arrival in
the town early Saturday morning.
The Defence spokesman said a
comprehensive cordon and search
phase of military operation has
now commenced to enable troops
mop up arms and ammunition and
also apprehend any terrorist who
might be hiding in the vicinity.
The exercise, he added, would also
determine details of the casualties
inflicted or incurred in the course of
the operations to clear Baga and
environs of terrorists.
Olukolade said similar exercise is
being carried out in over 15
locations namely Gajigana, Ngaze,
Ngenzai, Marte Junction, Mile 90,
Yoyo, Kekeno, Kukawa, Cross
Kauwa, Kangarwa, Amirari,
Kichimatari, Borokari Barati, Kauwa
and other localities where troops
have flushed out the terrorists in
the operations preceding the entry
to Baga.
“The troops are now dominating
and conducting aggressive patrols
in the locations; The morale of
troops remain high,” he stressed.
