Lake Chad, a marshy zone of islands, serves as a refuge for Boko Haram terrorists who attack the armies of Nigeria, Chad, and Cameroon.
Despite the death of its leader, Abubakar Shekau, the Boko Haram Islamist sect created in 2009 in Nigeria continues to perpetrate attacks against the defence and security forces as well as civilian populations, mainly in Nigeria and Cameroon.
Boko Haram terrorists continue to attack locals, especially in the Far North region of Cameroon.
