According to PRNigeria, the camps, Kusulu and Toumboun Adashe, were 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 self-styled leader of the ‘
unrepentant Boko Haram, Bakoura Buduma reportedly appointed a deputy for himself few days ago.
While he operated from a border area between Nigeria and Niger Republic, some Buduma’s fighters were deployed to Nigeria’s North-west and dominated a forest close to Rigachikun in Kaduna State.
A source told PRNigeria that the terrorists now rustle cattle and kidnap people to their den at a forest close to Rigachikun.

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