Fighter jets of MNJTF have bombarded  two major camps of Boko Haram Leader, Amir Bakoura Buduma, located in Lake Chad region. Dozens of his fighters were also wasted in the process, PR Nigeria has gathered.


This came barely 48 hours after he deployed ‘unrepentant’ fighters of his sect to join bandits in a forest in Kaduna State.

The camps, Kusulu and Toumboun Adashe, are located in the South West of Lake Chad.

They were destroyed by offensive bombardments carried out by fighter jets of the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) air troops.

Dozens of the Boko Haram fighters, military sources, confirmed were killed, while those who survived sustained injuries.

The MNJTF aerial raid was aided by the collaboration of French forces.

The counter-insurgency operation at the terrorists’ camps took place on Wednesday, PRNigeria gathered.

It was, however, unclear as to whether Buduma, the self-styled Boko Haram ‘Ultimate Commander’, was affected by the military attack.

PRNigeria had also reported that the self-styled leader of the ‘unrepentant’ Boko Haram, Bakoura Buduma had appointed a deputy for himself.

While he operated from a border area between Nigeria and the Niger Republic, some of Buduma’s fighters were deployed to North-west and dominated a forest close to Rigachikun in Kaduna State.

The Boko Haram faction has been having a running battle with ISWAP in the North-East and Lake Chad region.

Apart from the massive surrendering of their members to Nigerian Troops, several other Boko Haram terrorists, under Mallam Hussain Izharouddeen, are also surrendering to Cameroonian military at Moroa province.
