by the Chadian army in Damasak, Borno state.
Spokesperson of Chadian Army, Col. Azem
Agouna, while revealing this yesterday April 22nd,
said the children, all aged between 12 and above
and of Chadian nationality managed to escape
during the clashes between insurgents and

places and asked Chadian security forces for
help. The spokesman said the children have
