Over 30 Boko Haram militants killed in Lake Chad region

LAGOS, Nigeria

At least 33 Boko Haram militants have been killed and many others injured as the West African regional army launched airstrikes on their bases in the Lake Chad region, an army spokesman said on Thursday. 

Timothy Antigha, spokesman to the regional troops, said in a statement that the ground troops working with the Air Force team also destroyed or recovered large weapons from the militant hideouts following the air raid.

“The multinational joint task force wishes to warn individuals still associated with Boko Haram to surrender themselves for demobilization and rehabilitation, while the opportunity still exists,” Antigha added.
