GAMBORU, Nigeria: Chadian forces scored a key victory over Nigeria’s Boko Haram on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), wresting control of the border town of Gamboru within hours of launching a ground offensive against the jihadist group. Around 2,000 Chadian troops backed by armored vehicles crossed the border into Gamboru from the Cameroonian town of Fotokol after days of clashes with the insurgents.
