- Some 116 militants died in ambush.
Defence Ministry spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Didier Badjeck, has confirmed that Cameroon’s army killed 116 Boko Haram militants on Wednesday when they attacked a base in the Far North region of the country. He noted that Militants ambushed a column of army vehicles using an improvised explosive device and then hundreds attacked in the region of Amchide.
“The response of our forces was swift and appropriate. The attack was repulsed and the attackers neutralized,” Badjeck said, as he stressed that 116 militants died. One soldier was killed and at least two vehicles lost. Boko Haram has killed hundreds of people this year, mostly in northeastern Nigeria, as it continues a campaign for an Islamist state.
