Multinational Joint Task Force Disrupts Boko Haram Supply Chain, Kills Insurgent in Lake Chad Operation

In a successful operation, the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) gunned down one terrorist and disrupted an attempted movement by insurgents around the Lake Chad area. The insurgents were ambushed in Litri Island, situated on the border between Chad and Nigeria on May 13th.

 The MNJTF, a combined military force composed of soldiers supplied by countries bordering Lake Chad including Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, and Niger, has been instrumental in combating terrorism in the region. The group often conducts joint operations against Boko Haram and its splinter faction, the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP).

 This recent operation highlights the MNJTF’s continued vigilance in countering the insurgencies of Boko Haram and ISWAP. A statement released by the MNJTF on Wednesday confirmed the success of the mission, adding that it “marks a blow to terrorist capabilities in the area.”

 The operation successfully thwarted Boko Haram’s attempt to move supplies, potentially disrupting their ability to carry out attacks. The seized items include weapons, ammunition, food, and other resources crucial for the insurgents’ operations.

The MNJTF’s efforts are likely to continue, as its spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Abubakar Abdullahi, noted that “The MNJTF remains committed to eradicate the menace of terrorism and restore peace and security to the region.”
