Two soldiers, five civilians as Boko Haram insurgents attack border town of Cameroon and Chad

​Boko Haram terrorists have killed five civilians and two soldiers in Cameroon and Chad.

The development came barely 48 hours after the insurgent group attacked Dapchi Girls School in Yobe, whisking away over 94 students.

“A group of Boko Haram fighters made an incursion during Tuesday night in Assigashia,” the administrative authorities in the northern Cameroon border area were quoted as saying.

“The attackers killed five people and wounded five more.”

The raid was confirmed along with the casualty toll by an official in the Cameroon security services.

Assigashia is a border town which gives direct access to Nigeria and has seen many Boko Haram invasions in the past.

In Chad, two soldiers, including a captain, were killed in a Boko Haram ambush on Wednesday, a senior military official said Thursday.

The attack took place in the west of the country in the Lake Chad region near the Nigerian frontier as the troops were returning from a border patrol.

“The Boko Haram attackers disappeared into the islands on the lake,” the source said.
