More than 100 Boko Haram Takfiri militants have been killed by Cameroonian army during their attack on the African country. Over a hundred Boko Haram fighters have been killed by Cameroonian army during an attack within the country’s boarders.
In a statement by the Cameroonian government spokesman, Issa Tchiroma Bakary, “the Cameroonian response (to the attack) resulted in over 100 deaths among the aggressors.”
According to the statement, the fighting took place in the northern border town of Fotokol on Saturday.
“There were no casualties reported on the Cameroonian side after the attack,” the statement said, adding, “Our defense forces responded vigorously with mortar fire aimed at the positions held by units of the Boko Haram terrorist group that was behind the attack.”
The militants reportedly retreated to the Nigerian border town of Gamboru Ngala, which is under their control for over a week.
Nearly 650,000 Nigerians have fled their homes due to Boko Haram attacks and are displaced inside the country, while thousands more have taken refuge in neighboring countries, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees says.
