Newsone Nigeria reports that the Chadian troops have again dealt a major blow on Boko Haram insurgents, following the killing of 100 of its members in Magumeri, a local government in the northern part of Borno.
This burgeoning online news platform understands that Borno State, northeast Nigeria, is the major hotbed of the Boko Haram crisis in Nigeria.
