Boko Haram: Chad Withdraws Troops From Nigeria To Cameroon by Obinoscopy(m): 1:21pm On Mar 13, 2015
By Madjiasra Nako and Beau-Bernard Fonka Mutta

N'DJAMENA/YAOUNDE (Reuters) - Much of the Chadian force fighting Boko Haram in Nigeria has withdrawn to Cameroon and is deploying further south, Chadian soldiers and a Cameroonian military official said on Thursday, signalling the potential start of a new offensive.

Chad's military has spearheaded an operation by Nigeria's neighbours against the Islamist militant group that has killed thousands in northeast Nigeria and in recent months mounted an increasing number of cross-border raids.

Nigeria has simultaneously launched an offensive to retake a series of towns with the backing of hundreds of mercenaries from South Africa and the former Soviet Union in a bid to secure towns ahead of a rescheduled March 28 election.

Chadian soldiers, who asked not to be identified, said troops operating in Nigeria had pulled back from their forward base of Gambaru to Fotokol, a town on the Cameroon side of the border.

"We don't know the reason for the withdrawal. We just received the orders," one of them said, adding that the force was now heading south to the border town of Banki.

Banki lies on the main road from Cameroon to the Nigerian town of Bama, the second-biggest town in Borno state. Security sources in Nigeria said fierce fighting was on-going to retake Bama, which has been held by Boko Haram since late last year.

A spokesman for the Chadian military was not immediately available for comment. A Cameroonian military source confirmed Chadian troops had crossed back into Cameroon and were headed south but gave no further details.

Chadian troops last week pushed the furthest they have gone into Nigeria when they freed Dikwa, a town at a major crossroad some 80 km (50 miles) east of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno.

Since then, Nigeria asked Chadian troops to leave and deployed its own troops to the town, Chadian officers said.

Nigeria's defence headquarters said on Thursday that their army had cleared the last Boko Haram camps in Adamawa state, which borders Borno.

Chadian troops are also battling Boko Haram to the north along the long, porous border with Niger.

A Niger military source said about 20 Boko Haram militants were arrested in Damasak on Thursday, highlighting how fighters were still present in the zone despite reports from Niger officers that they had scattered them this week.

Mistrust and rivalries have hamstrung coordination between the regional armies, which are in the process of planning and seeking United Nations backing for a joint 10,000-strong force to defeat Boko Haram.

Chadian officials complain that Nigeria has repeatedly prevented them from advancing despite Chad having scored several victories against the militants, who recently pledged allegiance to Islamic State and aim to carve out a caliphate in Nigeria's northeast.

Nigeria's military denies any lack of cooperation and says it has not been credited enough for its own gains against Boko Haram.

With Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan seeking reelection at polls on March 28, his opponent Muhammadu Buhari has lambasted his government for relying on Chadian intervention to tackle Boko Haram.

What does this mean to the lay man? Or rather, what is the effect? The way I see it, they were withdrawn from a location and placed on another location. They are still active in the fight.

I will give a thanksgiving offering the day I will read that Borno is now completely rid of bokoharam like Adamawa state. It would be great news

It is a shame that Nigeria "fell" for the western media and Boko haram ego onslaught against Nigeria. Giving Chad all the credit to get Nigeria jealous enough to kick Chad out!

It is like a 5 year old saying I like Daddy better just to get Mommy jealous and do their demand to prove she is "good". The oldest trick of reverse psychology that you'd think a whole country with sensible adults will not fall for.

Tompolo's militants are 'securing' our waterways from pirates

Gani Adams' OPCs are 'protecting' our pipelines from vandals

Tchadian soldiers are defending our territory from insurgents.

South African and Russian Mercenaries are helping us fight our war.

So what then is the job of the Nigerian armed forces since we have now outsourced our national security and the defence of our territorial integrity to militants, mercenaries and foreign armies.

Jonathan is the worst commander-in-chief in the history of Nigeria. Jonathans incompetence and mediocrity has finished off all our institutions i:e military, judiciary, anti-graft agencies, media etc.

JONATHAN MUST GO !!!

Better. The Chadian propaganda had gone into overdrive lately. How they have single handedly turned the tide on boko haram. I think the Nigerian government was naive at first to let Chad drive in that deep into Nigerian territory. Guess they know better now

Lol...the nation never fell for anything, the presidency did...as usual. Well, there are battle-hardened South African mercenaries leading the charge.

As at this minute, no town is under Boko Haram control anymore, the virgin hunters have been chased out to neighboring countries. We need to follow up and kill them there.

Boko Haram and it's leader buhari are gradually coming to an end. Kill them wherever you find them. Show no mercy. Send them to their 72 virgins quickly. Use their blood to cleanse the land. Make sure you drop bombs at Daura when next you guys are going on aerial assault.
