Nine Chadian soldiers have been confirmed dead while 21 others sustained various degrees of injury after a fierce battle with Boko Haram members in Gamboru-Ngala in Bornu state on Sunday Feb 1st. "We regret nine dead and 21 wounded. On the enemy side: more than 200 deaths...," a statement from the Chadian Army released yesterday February 3rd said.
