9 Chadian soldiers died in fight with Boko Haram in Borno

  
Following the fierce battle with Boko Haram members in Gamboru-Ngala in Borno state on Sunday Feb 1st, the Chadian Army yesterday announced the death of nine soldiers while 21 others sustained varying degrees of injury.
"We regret nine dead and 21 wounded. On the enemy side: more than 200 deaths...," a statement from the Chadian Army released yesterday February 3rd said.
The statement also added that the death and injury toll of their soldiers could rise since clean-up operations in Gamboru-Ngala and other villages where the soldiers battled with the militants were ongoing. The bodies of the soldiers have been repatriated to Chad for burial.
