Boko Haram militants have reportedly killed seven Chadian soldiers and a local guard.

The militants attacked those killed in an ambush in Lake Chad, according to AFP reporting.

Security sources said on Sunday that the seven Chadian soldiers and the guard were killed on Friday in Mbomouga in Chad’s Ngouboua area.

Thirteen others were wounded in the attack according to Chadian officials.

“The Boko Haram forces lost six of their people and left behind two weapons,” one security source was quoted by AFP as saying.

Chad and other countries in the Lake Chad basin continue to suffer deadly attacks from Boko Haram militants.

Just last month, militants killed four people in an attack on an island on Lake Chad. Another 13 villagers were also killed in eastern Chad.

The leaders of countries in the Lake Chad basin last December vowed to push for the quick implementation of a Regional Stabilisation Strategy in the areas to deal with the crisis.

The leaders also resolved to roll out the Quick Impact Projects (QIPs).
