Cameroon Communities Benefit From MNJTF Free Medical Outreach 

Inline with is commitment to improve Civil-Military relations in the ongoing Operation Lake Sanity 2, the Sector 1 of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in Cameroon has on Wednesday commenced a one week free medical outreach programme for communities in Darak, Kofia, Hile Alifa, and Soueram in extreme North Cameroon. 

A statement from the spokesman of the MNJTF Headquarters in N’Djamena, Chad, Lt. Col. Abubakar Abdullahi, said the gesture was to enhance the health conditions of local populations affected by ongoing operations.

Abdullahi said the development would provide medical consultations and free drugs to those in need as well as ensure that vulnerable communities receive essential healthcare services.

“The outreach program provided robust community engagement opportunity and witnessed an overwhelming response from the locals. Residents in the targeted areas had the opportunity to consult with medical professionals about various health issues and receive necessary treatments and medications at no cost. This initiative is pivotal in relieving the healthcare burden on communities that have limited access to medical facilities and face frequent disruptions due to instability.

“Operation Lake Sanity 2’s approach to integrating civil military cooperation with military operations underscores the MNJTF’s commitment to regional stabilization. By addressing immediate healthcare needs, the MNJTF aims to build trust and cooperation between the military and local populations. This medical outreach, alongside ongoing security operations, reinforces the dedication to restoring peace and normalcy in the region while securing the well-being of its inhabitants,” Abdullahi said.

In another development, the MNJTF spokesman announced that the ongoing Operation Lake Sanity has continued to yield results as three Boko Haram terrorists had surrendered to troops in Cameroon and Nigeria. 

“In Cameroon’s Sector 1, two terrorist fighters surrendered to the troops at Wulgo. They have been identified as Rawagana Mustapha, 18, and Mustapha Ali, 20. 

“Similarly, Sector 3 in Nigeria reported the surrender of one terrorist fighter, Ibrahim Malam, 28, to the 403 Amphibious Brigade in Baga. Preliminary investigations revealed that Malam had been a Boko Haram fighter living in Kwaleram, south of Lake Chad, for 6 years.

“As Operation Lake Sanity II progresses, MNJTF urges other terrorists to surrender and lay down their arms for lasting peace and prosperity in the region,” the statement added.
