Foreign soldiers arrive Nigeria in 200 vehicles to fight terrorists

The soldiers crossed the border into Nigeria on Sunday, March 8, to serve as reinforcements to the troops already on ground.

200 vehicles carrying soldiers from Niger and Chad have arrived in Nigeria as part of efforts against terrorist group, Boko Haram, military sources say.

“They left in a huge convoy of over 200 vehicles, some of them fitted with machine guns, including armored tanks, ambulances, water tankers and cargo trucks, which indicate they were going for a prolonged operation,” a journalist told CNN.

The soldiers are part of a multinational force formed by Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon to fight the terrorists.
