Location: Bardai, Tibesti Region, Northern Chad
Following the abduction of the UN representative of Chad, Mahamat Zene Cherif in Aouzou, KOA cells operating in northern Chad have been ordered to step up recruitment of local tribes.
SIGINT intercepted by SI7 shows that the KOA high command, including HVI Rasheed Sadeeki, are keen to consolidate in the north of the country, enabling them to keep open lines of supply and communication between them and Azearian State cells operating on the border of Libya.
Further intercepts have confirmed that former President Victor Aluma has resurfaced after two years, and has been attempting to open his own lines of communication with the KOA, directly through Sadeeki. Aluma’s motive is unknown, but in all probability is linked with the abduction of Cherif, who has remained in the hands of the KOA since September.
The UN has made several pleas for Cherif’s release but as yet the KOA have refused to respond and are as yet to issue a ransom for potential exchange or negotiation. The actions taken by the KOA suggest they are planning to use Cherif for other means.
If the Knights of Azear are successful in bringing the northern tribes under their banner, they have the potential to dominate Batha region, effectively splitting the country in half, while ACM operations in the south continue recruitment and training of foreign fighters.
