Boko Haram militants on Sunday again took their attack beyond Nigeria, kidnapping at least 60 people in a new attack in northern Cameroon, reports have said.
The terrorists “burst into two villages in the Tourou area. They torched houses and left with around 60 people. Most of these people were women and children,” a police officer told AFP. He added that the attack had “left some people dead,” although he did not give an exact toll.
About 148 members of the terror group had last Sunday been killed in a fight with Camerronian troops at fighting in Kolofata.
Following increased cross-border attacks by the terrorist, Cameroon and Chad, the two countries sharing border with Nigeria across the hotbed states of the insurgency, have promised to join forces with the country.
