Boko Haram fighters on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 attacked troops from Chad deployed to Gamboru, Nigerian border town before dawn, before they were repelled.

A military source who spoke anonymously to AFP said: “The Boko Haram elements wanted to surprise us by attacking at about 4 am. We were aware about it from the day before and were prepared.

“They arrived with 14 vehicles and two armoured vehicles. We repulsed them and they retreated. A helicopter was brought in to join the pursuit and destroy them.”

The Multinational Joint task Force (MNJTF) set up up by Nigeria and her neighbouring countries to tackle insurgency.
