Boko Haram militants have reportedly killed 100 people in an attack on Northern Cameroon.

The terrorists were said to have killed residents of Fotokol town in their homes on Wednesday, February 4, while also setting a mosque on fire.

Boko Haram members also reportedly slit the throats of many of the victims in the town.

“Boko Haram entered Fotokol through Gamboru early in the morning and they killed more than 100 people in the mosque, in the houses and they burned property,” a local leader told Reuters.

The leader also said, via telephone, that one of his sons had been shot dead during the attack.
