Twenty-seven Boko Haram insurgents are killed when troops from the Multinational Joint Task Force (set up by Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Benin and Cameroon) attacked and arrested ten others in Cameroon, according to a Commander of a Regional Army Force, on Wednesday.
The attack was located near the town of Fotokol which is located in close proximity with the Nigerian border. Fortunately, no soldiers were killed in action.
The main goal of Boko Haram is to enforce a strict interpretation of Islamic law, known as Sharia law and since 2009, at least 14,000 people have died at the hands of the fundamentalists. So, the task force is to fight the terrorist attacks and to increase protection and safety of their countries.
