CAMEROUN yesterday said its Army killed 92 Boko Haram members and freed 850 villagers in a joint operation with their Nigerian counterparts.
The operation in Kumshe, Nigeria, close to the border with Cameroun, was conducted under the auspices of a multinational force fighting the insurgents, Cameroun’s Communications Minister, Issa Tchiroma Bakary, said.
He added that two Camerounian soldiers were killed during the operation by an accidental mine explosion, while five other soldiers were wounded, Reuters quoted Bakary as saying.
He added that the Army captured weapons and ammunition and found a centre for production of homemade mines.
There was no immediate comment from Nigeria or independent confirmation of the operation or toll.
