|Chad To Try 58 Suspected Boko Haram Militants by tolexy007(m): 10:35am On Apr 16, 2020|

Fifty-eight suspected Islamists who were rounded up in a Chadian operation against Boko Haram will be heard by a criminal court from Thursday, Justice Minister Djimet Arabi told AFP.
Chad’s President, Idriss Deby Itno, asserted that Boko Haram militants were chased out of the country in the operation carried out between March 31 and April 8.
A Chadian army spokesman said at least 52 soldiers and 1,000 jihadists were killed during the operation, which was launched after a massive attack on an army base near Lake Chad that claimed the lives of around 100 soldiers.
Idriss warned his allies in the region that Chad’s army would no longer take part in operations outside the country.
The force, considered one of the best in the region, has fought Boko Haram in the Lake Chad region as part of the Joint Multinational Force with Nigeria, Cameroon and Niger.
Meanwhile, in another news, jihadists killed five Nigerian security personnel in a gunfight outside Maiduguri, the main city in Borno State, security sources said Wednesday. The state is the restive northeast of the country.
A joint military and police patrol came under fire Tuesday from fighters aligned to the so-called Islamic State group near Buta village, 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Maiduguri, security personnel told AFP.
“We lost two soldiers, two policemen and one militiaman in the attack,” a military officer said on condition of anonymity.
The officer said it was an “unexpected encounter as the terrorists were heading somewhere to launch an attack when they bumped into the patrol team”.

That's good and I'm sure Chadian govt knows the right thing to do.
Not like this other country that will capture and pamper them and even propose presidential pardon and rehabilitation after they killed her soldiers.

Buhari won't like this news.
Those boys should be given amnesty since they have repented
