A Boko Haram landmine killed four Chadian soldiers near the border with Niger at Kaiga Kindji in the Lake Chad region. The soldiers were killed on Saturday whilst on patrol.

Although the ISIS-affiliated group once controlled an area the size of Belgium, a regional offensive by Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon and Niger, have reduced their area of control to effectively Nigeria’s Sambisa forest.

It is estimated that as many as 15,000 people have been killed since Boko Haram began its terrorist insurgency in 2009. Since its insurgency began, tens of thousands have been left hungry because of the effects the war has had on farming around Lake Chad.

Nearly half a million children around the lake face “severe acute malnutrition” due to drought and the insurgency by Boko Haram, UNICEF said on Thursday.

With the loss of Shekau’s wilayat, there must be around 120/150 Boko-mofos left but the forest is highly booby trapped 🙁 Having a few COIN aircrafts loitering with FLIR would help. It seems that frenchs have now an under-tree canopy radar, this could help a lot.
