In continuation of their blitzkrieg, Chadian troops led by the president of the country, Idris Deby, have captured an arms warehouse believed to be owned by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in the Goje-Chadian area of Sambisa.
The capture of the arms store was said to have occurred on Saturday, April 4, during an offensive against strongholds of the Jihadists.
President Deby was reported to have led the operation which lasted for hours with the soldiers routing the insurgents off the area.
Military sources in the area told the newspaper that the arms store is the largest owned by Boko Haram.
Deby has continued to lead from the front in the war against Boko Haram, dealing crippling blow to the insurgents on recent weeks.
Last week, Nigerian troops were filmed celebrating their Chadian counterparts as they routed the insurgents in the north-east.
