According to reports, the Cameroonian army has killed "over 100" Boko Haram fighters who were attempting to enter its territory.

A spokesperson for the country’s government, Issa Tchiroma Bakary reportedly said in a statement, read out on radio, that the army had dealt "a severe setback" to Boko Haram.

The statement said:

"There were no casualties reported on the Cameroonian side after the attack,"

"Our defence 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 Cameroonian response resulted in over 100 deaths among the aggressors,"

The statement reportedly added that the Boko Haram members were forced closer back to the Nigerian border town of Gamboru Ngala, which Boko Haram allegedly seized over a week ago.
