Six people died after a female suicide bomber blew herself up in Western Chad in the early hours of Wednesday, August 14.

A senior Army Officer said he believes these attacks are linked to Nigeria’s Boko Haram Militants.

The attack occurred in Kaiga-Kindjiria district in Lac Province, which abuts the vast Lake Chad – a region shared by Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Nigeria. 

Six died, including a soldier, and many were left injured.

Boko Haram has carried out at least ten cross-border attacks in Chad since last year, mainly targeting army positions.

They launched an rebellion in North-Eastern Nigeria a decade ago that has since spilled over into neighboring countries.

Twenty-three troops were killed in March when they came under attack.

Eleven soldiers were also killed in June and six were injured in clashes at Tchoukoutalia, authorities said twenty-six Jihadist were killed.

According to Estimates, Boko Haram has killed about twenty-seven thousand people and displaced about two million in Nigeria.
